Did I See A Ghost?

December 29 – I want to write this before I forget it because it was startling what happened. My son was outside walking the dog. He wasn’t supposed to be outside for more than a few minutes so while I was cooking dinner, I checked out the window to make sure all was ok, and it was. I could see him and the dog clearly even though it was getting dark because it was after sunset.

A few minutes went by and I looked outside again. Behind my son’s left shoulder was a young man. He was standing next to my son and the dog was on the leash in front of my son. I wondered who stopped by our house to see the dog (because he’s a new puppy). I figured it was one of my older son’s friends considering the person was a full head taller than my son.

He was dressed in a dark jacket and jeans, had dark hair and a friendly smile on his face. He looked to be about 25 years old. I couldn’t really see who he was though, and couldn’t figure out which friend of my sons’ he was. I was standing in the window looking out trying to figure it out when my son looked up and waved to me. And the other person did too. I waved back and then decided to go outside to see who this was.

But to my complete and utter disbelief, when I asked my son who the person was next to him (and he was no longer there when I got outside), my son said there hadn’t been anyone with him. He’d been alone outside with the dog. My mouth gaping open, I kept asking him who stopped by to say hello and stand with him outside with the dog. But he kept looking at me as if I were crazy because there hadn’t been anyone.

But I know that I saw someone with him. Clear as day and as a solid person. Even writing this brings me a sense of centering as if the knowing affirms this. I am not frightened, just curious and I want to know more…

This is not the first time this has happened. I saw my Mom two weeks after she passed, standing in my kitchen smiling. She wasn’t transparent, but instead looked as if she were really there. I blinked and kept looking at her thinking that my eyes were playing tricks on me because I had come into the house from the bright sunny day outside. But she stayed there for a few minutes and I was locked into place. I was smiling so big and said, “Hi Mom. So good to see you.” I remember being transfixed just seeing her standing there. Within a minute when I closed my eyes again, she vanished. But I knew in my heart that she had come to let me know that she is with me. I feel her often here so I know that to be true.

But I have no idea who this man was…do you?
