A Gift from the Other Side


This literally just happened today 1st april 2008, and no it is not an april fools joke. I was talking to my dad on the phone and he told me that the most amazing thing had just happened to him. He had been out with his friends and arrived home at about 5 in the morning when he found that the statue we keep on the t.v. fell on the ground, although this always happens even though there are many statues on the t.v., this is the only one that falls.

My dad then went to sit on the bed when he noticed a strange flower lying on the bed, my dad decided he would ask my grandmother in the morning if she had placed the flower there. He then lay on the bed and just as he was about to sleep, he felt someone gently touch him although no one else was in the room.

In the morning ny dad went to see my grandmother upstairs and ask her if she had placed the flower on his bed but she couldn't have as she is 90 and finds it difficult to walk, he then spoke to my aunt about it and she told him that she didn't even go in his bedroom.

One very strange thing that happened since the manifestation of the flower is that for the first time in 3 years my grandmother actually said she was happy when asked how she was feeling usually she always replied that she was depressed or lonely. My dad was also filled with joy and happiness and everyone noticed it.

I truly believe that this flower is a gift from God or someone who is watching (maybe my deceased grandfather) over us to tell us not to despair and to have faith and be happy.

Sorry if my story is not scary though my experiences are never scary but rather comforting and show that even after our loved ones leave us they are never truly gone.

I would never apologize for sharing a story that is not scary. People who have paranormal experiences have a variety of responses to them. Thank you for sharing this story with us that has a familiar FAMILY feel to it, and proving as a few other story tellers have, that not all unexplained instances have to have us screaming our lungs and voices dry.
Thank you.

Oh Pixiemel how lucky you are!

I would give the world to have happy experiences like that.

All my personal experiences have been terrifying and malevolent except for one which I will post on this website in due course.

You are very lucky if it is a spirit doing that especially if it is a family member. Spirit friends will never leave you or be disloyal unless you insult them or tell them to leave.

You are VERY fortunate.

That story was so wonderful and happy! I am glad for your dad! My mother has died and I have never managed to contact her, or if she does she is hiding well. I am not living a happy life with my father and I think she knows that if she appears I will stop fighting for myself and start asking her for help all the time. But sometimes I do with she left something behind for me... Thank you for sharing!

I found your story wonderful, and very refreshing! Please do not apologize about it not being scary and what not. This is wonderful, I love these types of stories, and I am certain you are right. Who ever and how ever the flower got there, it had a positive effect on the house hold and its inhabitants. What else matters?

Thank you for taking the time to share with us!

God Bless!
