It's been a while since my last story on this wonderful site. Happenings at my house subsided quite a bit there for a while... Until recently... My wife is quite the skeptic when it comes to the paranormal or at least she likes to portray that. I think it's mostly because of her upbringing. She cannot deny the supernatural now. The most recent occurrences have been happening quite a lot to her.
Let me fill you in on the latest. I have been waking up a lot in the wee hours of the AM, roughly between 2:30 and 4:00. I awoke one night this past month to a consistent pushing down on my side of the bed. Thinking it was my two year old trying to get in to bed, I didn't think much of it until this went on for a couple minutes or so. I finally rolled over and looked to see if he needed help in to the bed and as you might expect - nobody was there (that I could see anyways).
The next night I awoke abruptly out of a dead sleep opened my eyes and BAM! Staring right back into my face was that of a woman. She was seriously lying right between my wife and I. It's hard to describe it but she was transparent, yet she wasn't. The most striking thing I can remember was her eyes. They were beautifully shaped, sort of oval. After starring in to her eyes for what seemed like forever, whoosh she was gone! The thing is, I didn't get too too freaked by this. I was mostly in awe.
A couple days later I returned home from work shortly after five o'clock. I went to the back bedroom where my wife was doing her hair / make up. She works a few hours in the evening when I get home from work. The kids were in our room, on the floor playing contently. I bent down to hug my boys when all of a sudden my wife let out a loud 'Oh my gosh!' and dropped her brush. I quickly jumped up and asked what was wrong! She was as white as a ghost (pardon the pun). She refused to talk about it. Finally after she got home from work she told me. She said that right as I knelt down to hug my boys, there was a figure, all black, standing directly behind me, over my shoulder. She said she felt that it was a young girl. As soon as she gasped and I stood up it had vanished.
A few days later we were both in my youngest sons room getting the boys ready for a day out when nearly the same thing happened. This however we both saw it. It was all black and it darted from our bedroom which was across the hall down the hallway toward our living room. We just looked at each other like holy crap!
My oldest son who is 2 and a half has been more vocal about things as well. We'll be in the kitchen eating when out of nowhere he'll say, "what's she doing?" or "who is that?" all the while looking out in to the living room. That is starting to concern me. While I don't want to discourage his seeing the supernatural, I cannot help but be a little timid about encouraging it too much. I know how spirits and ghosts can manipulate children in to thinking they're something that they're not to win their trust.
One night while my son was asleep and my wife was at work, I pinned a cross over his bed. I hadn't told my wife about this. I left for work the next morning before they got up and when I got home I asked my wife if she had noticed the cross. She told me she thought it was so cute how I had told my oldest that it was "Jesus' Cross". The thing is, I never got the chance to tell him that because he was asleep when I pinned it in this room and had left before he got up the next morning. She told me she wouldn't have noticed had my son not led her in to his room, pointed to it and said "it's Jesus' Cross!" We do believe in God but we don't really go to church like we should so I'm sure where he picked that up.
This is somewhat unrelated but I would GREATLY APPRECIATE some feedback on this...
My mom celebrated her birthday recently at her house. It was a huge party with DJ and all. The odd thing about that night is that in every single picture with the exception of one, my wedding band is on the wrong finger. My ring finger - on my right hand. I never ever take my ring off so I am baffled as to why in the pictures it is showing up on the other hand? There were a couple cameras there that night and each one showed the same thing.
As always, I appreciate you taking the time to read my story.
Peace and Love to You All!
