I’m reading Don’t Call Them Ghosts about a family that moves into an old home that is “haunted” by the spirits of three young children. I hesitate to call the home haunted because the family’s interactions with the spirits are actually quite endearing and the word haunted doesn’t conger up happy images.
After reading about 100 pages the other night, I went to bed and had a dream that my husband and I moved and friends and family where there on moving day to help. What I remembered when I woke up was that my Nana rolled up in her big full-size van, didn’t talk, and stayed in the background observing everything.
My Nana died two years ago of oral cancer and since then she’s been in my dreams several times. Always this time of year (my birthday is in March and hers was in April and she died in March), never a peep out of her, and always in the background taking everything in.
My sister says she’s had similar dreams and we’re both pretty much convinced that it is Nana checking in. After she passed away, I mentioned that she was welcome to visit me, so maybe she took me up on the offer? I’m okay with the dreams, they don’t scare me or leave me feeling uneasy. When she starts standing at the foot of the bed, then we might have to have a discussion.
Do you believe in spirits? Have you ever been visited? Is there any rhyme or reason to the visits?
