The Party has started!!!! Magaly at Pagan Culture has launched the All Hallow's Grim 2013 blog party.
The aim of All Hallow’s Grim 2013… So Good, So Dark is to use our artistic power, intellect and heart to create posts that show the delicious goodness that blooms in the dark.With that in mind, I have been trying to figure out what I wanted to write about on day one of "All Hallow's Grim" and I decided to share one of my banners and a true ghost story.
14 years ago, while I was pregnant with my middle witchlett, My oldest daughter 3 at the time; woke me up in the middle of the night and told me she saw a man watching me sleep. I naturally freaked out and called my then husband home from work.
When he got there he checked the entire house, doors windows, yard, the barn where our horses were kept and there was no sign that anyone had been on our property or in our house. This would be repeated a few more times during my pregnancy.
About a month before the baby would make her grand debut, while at my ex's aunts house helping her go through some old family photos, My daughter jumps up and takes a picture from her daddies hand and says "that's the man who watches mommy sleep" we all just stared at each other is amazement because the man is the picture was my husbands grandfather and she had never met him; he died 6 months before she was born, and that was the first time she had seen a picture of him.
We all just sat there thinking, well that's really odd but kinda cool at the same time, then we got another twist thrown at us; our daughter was not do to be born till mid April but she decided to show up almost 2 months early at the end of February and to all of our amazement not only was she perfectly healthy she was born on her great grandfathers birthday.
I like to think he knew she would come early and that he was watching over us to make sure she was ok.
A few things have happened in my daughters and my life since this story, my oldest daughter has developed a love for the paranormal, my middle one soon to be 14 is the living embodiment of her great-grandfather and I have learned that our love ones never really leave us, they're just waiting in the darkness and shadows to watch over us and keep us safe.
