This is my first post in the group, I don't know how much I will post but need some support for the next couple of weeks.
It is my grans anniversary on saturday, funeral date would be a week on sunday and I know she is with me. I feel her holding me up, when I want to collapse and feel unable to cope I find the strength from somewhere (my faith as well) and her asking me to keep going for her great grandaughters sake, the great grandaughter she never met.

sweetie xxx

You are very welcome here as I'm sure you know my love. It's wonderful that you're so "in touch" spiritually with your gran. I know it's not the same as having her actually there and send you lots of love and light.

When ever I feel totally down and out, I always get a slight pain in my chest. It feels like someone's touching me. I look down, and I swear on my life that it feels like someone then flicks my nose. It makes me smile since that was dad's thing, the classic "you've got something on your shirt *hits you in nose* gotcha!"

I've had a lot of white feathers strewn in my path recently. I think this is a sign from the afterlife, that my dad and uncles are with me and watching over me - they always appear when I'm stressed and insecure, or struggling with my son. I also sometimes just "notice" the pictures of my dad in the cabinet on our landing and they look sorta lit up, brighter, or something, so I can see the softness in his eyes looking right at me. White butterflies is another one I get.

My brother has been having some "beyond the grave" experiences lately and that's been weighing on all of our minds.

First he was sitting at a bus stop at midnight alone. He was thinking of dad having a good self laugh. When he got up to stretch he noticed there are TWO heat marks on the glass (it's cold in Canada lol) not just one. And twice he's heard dad laugh while he's been alone.



This is the photo he posted. Dad was a few inches shorter than him when they were sitting, which makes it even weirder.

Ashley that's some intriguing evidence that his dad could still be around! Thanks so much for sharing. I love your new siggy by the way!

thanks, I'm glad someone finally chose to make one! LOL. I just did a FFA and it took a while. Always makes me sad when I choose to have one done FFA since baby ones always get done first even if they were posted a week after my request.

Every now and then I get a whiff of my mom's perfume. So strange. I haven't actually smelled the perfume (like out of the bottle or on my mom) in almost 10 years, yet I KNOW that fragrance SO well when I smell it. It's not out in public either, it's just at home. It's extra weird because I don't wear perfume, so it's not me I'm smelling!

Our family (my mom's side) always had a thing with birds and often when I am feeling down and missing my mom, I'll look over and there will be a bird sitting in the strangest place, near me. And several times I've had a bird actually fly into the window at home when I've either been having a bad day or thinking about my mom. VERY weird. This same thing also happened to my cousin (my mom's niece whom she was very close to).

Right after my mom died though, we had all sorts of weird experiences, like flickering lights, things falling randomly off the counter when no one was near them, etc. I definitely believe my mom is always around and wants me to know that! As creepy as it is sometimes for me, it's comforting at the same time.

I never really know if it's just me or something more, but I have seen my mom in my dreams a lot. Lately, she's not come around and I pray that she is not gone completely...

Not long after she passed away, I had a dream that she somehow came back. She was sitting on my bed, telling me how nice the funeral had been. She was proud of me for everything I did and wanted me to make sure her cousin had been contacted about her passing. She talked about a few things she needed me to do, but I had already done them. She told me she felt weak and asked me to forgive her for not being strong enough to stay here with me.

Months later, I had a dream that I was in the hospital with her. Not like when she passed away, but I was sitting on a chair and she was in her scrubs. She was a nurse in the NICU. She brought a baby over to me and put it in my arms. It was the most beautiful baby in the world and I knew it was to be mine. This dream stirred up a lot of emotions, and when they were all sorted through several days later, I knew that I wanted to be a mom more than I wanted anything else.

This was quite the realization, since the hubby and I had never been sure if I wanted kids or not. Several days after that, I worked up the guts to mention how sad I was that I didn't give my mom a grandchild. Not necessarily looking to have a conversation about US having kids or anything, I was just mostly upset and cautiously trying to discuss it. Hubby said: I have been thinking lately that it might be nice to have a family... and now we are WTTC.

Oh my land your story's are all so touching!!!!

Mine was me and grandma. for the longest time, Same with the one lady above me about the perfume. I always knew when she was upset with me, i'd smell her perfume on the chair in the apt, or the cross necklas of her's i wore would break.

then i found my husband/ middle school sweethearts, after 13 yrs right after we got engaged her necklace was gone, mom had bone and liver cancer & within 2 months mom passed, i def feel grand ma was there, there was a butterflie trying to get into the house it tryed for like an hr then she passed. After i losted the necklace i figured i didn't need any more help , i had my almost to be husband mom needed the help. I haven't felt her since which will be 4 yrs in june.

As of mom we still have Mr. turtle that she had & wanted to restore but never did, this summer we would have ( what looked like ) the same dragon fly (which is funny because our friend's son used to call her dragon lady LOL ) come around and try and land on us, or Mr. Turtle one even landed on my infents check. Trisha even as a baby has never met her..would be fussing in the car and as soon as we placed her down in her car seat next to the stone,,she would smile and laugh.

These signs keep me sane
