This story doesn't have the concrete research and prolonged experiences that my last story, "An Illinois Haunting" had, but it's something I still think about and question.
For Memorial Day every year, my mother and I like to buy a bunch of flowers to plant in front of our deceased relatives' headstones. We have to make the trek to about 3-4 cemeteries, all in the city of Chicago. The year of this story is 2001. I was in my senior year of high school. This was actually the first year that we decided to make this activity a tradition, and I was really excited to visit all of the old cemeteries. I'm not creeped out by being in cemeteries at all, and I really enjoy taking in the beauty and artistry of old headstones and monuments.
We were at the second cemetery of the day, St. Luke's, which is predominately German-Lutheran. My mom was busy planting flowers, and I was slightly bored doing that, and decided to wander around and check out the different monuments. It's a pretty big place, but I always had her SUV in view - it's pretty hard to miss since it is bright yellow!
I was a fairly good distance from her when I felt the temperature drop slightly, it could have been the shade from the trees, but it was a very hot day. Then I began to notice bubbles floating around. There weren't too many of them, but they seemed to only be floating maybe a foot to two feet off the ground. It kind of made me laugh because I thought maybe there was a family with a small child there, but I looked all over that area and couldn't find anything or anyone that could explain this. I didn't see any caretakers, visitors, or vehicles. I tried to follow the bubbles to see if they led anywhere, but they would just float and then attach to the grass or burst.
At this point I was confused and disoriented, and I couldn't see where my mom's car was. I finally made it back to her after jogging a bit. I explained what happened to her and we drove over there but couldn't see any person or thing that could have created bubbles.
These were not orbs, they were real bubbles, and I know it sounds crazy, but I just wanted to see if anyone else had heard or experienced anything like this?
