What Is YOUR Ghost Story?!

real ghost storiesHalloween is just around the corner.  Time for candy corn, spider webs and ghost stories.  Do YOU have any ghost stories?  Not the one about the hook in the door.  I mean REAL ghost stories.

I believe just about everybody has had something happen to them that was, well, unexplainable.  Or perhaps it actually made perfect sense.

Personally, I’ve smelled the cigar smoke of a ghost that haunted an old theater I used to work at.  I’ve also seen a flower blow towards me when there was no wind – a sign from my father at his gravesite.

But my mom has a better story.  Are you ready?  Turn down the lights and take a seat.

My father died about 13 years ago from cancer.  There was never a better man that walked this earth.  He would never come back to “SCARE” anyone.  But to comfort them?  Absolutely.

Unfortunately, before my dad died I mentioned I didn’t want him to appear to me because it would “freak me out.”  Big mistake.  Cause I sure would like to see my father again.  But there was no talk about this between my mom and dad!

It was my middle son’s birthday and my mother was at my house in the living room while I was in the kitchen.   I turned to see her walk in with a “look” on her face that I had never seen before.  She said, “I just saw your father.”  –silence–  “What?”  “He was standing there looking healthy and smiling – just there in the living room.”

You see, my middle son was born just a few months before my dad died.  My father only held him once, and never got to enjoy time with him.  My mother and I decided this was my father coming to tell us that he loved Michael, loved us and was OK.

A second time my mother saw him in their bedroom.  I believe she woke up and rolled over, only to find him there.  Seeing him was reassuring for my mother.

Of course my dad isn’t a GHOST, per say.  He just brought us comfort when we needed it the most.  But you have to admit, this kind of thing doesn’t happen every day, does it?

Have you seen somebody you love that has passed?  Or have you witnessed the unexplainable, whether scary or not?  Are there any ghosts in your past?   What about those great stories from when you were a kid and saw something absolutely frightening that you can’t explain to this day?  What is YOUR ghost story?

    I saw my grandmother at the end of the hallway after she died, but I didn’t know she had passed. She walked from her bedroom to the hall, looked at me kind of peacefully and then walked back into her room. I could not believe it when I saw my mom and she said my grandmother had died.

    I had a dream when I was a teenager that scared me to death… there was a dead body and a black cat. I woked up in a panic because I was so scared. But when I opened my eyes I SWEAR I saw the body hanging on the wall, and then a black cat jumped up towards it and stared at me. I know it sounds like I was only half awake and was still dreaming but it wasn’t like that… I really REALLY felt I SAW this stuff… my heart just about jumped out of my chest!

    That was a nice story. I do believe they come back to let us know they are alright and for us not to worry.

  • I have never EVER seen a ghost, scary or otherwise. And I kind of feel left out about that.
