Ghosts in the House!

Do any of y'all believe in ghosts? I do. Because there are some living in my house. And they've been here all of the 27 years that we've lived here.

The lovelies have had a sense of our spooky visitors from a young age. Of course, I've always told them that there are no spirits roaming about our humble abode. But that's not exactly true.
I catch them floating around out of the corner of my eye quite often. And, on more than one occasion, I've awakened in the night to see an ethereal being hovering overhead or standing beside the bed. This is creepy, but it's easy enough to simply close my eyes and refuse to open them again until morning. Yes, I see the apparitions during the daylight hours, but they are nearly as creepy as they are after the sun goes down. I will even talk to them during the day.
The scariest spook that I have actually SEEN was the man standing beside my bed watching me sleep. I didn't like that and I sent him packing. Immediately. That was over 20 years ago and I haven't seen him since. 

The worse part is when I feel them sitting on the bed. You know, when you feel movement, but no one and nothing is there, that you can see? Yeah, that's the creepiest.

I've been known to make it perfectly clear that I will NOT tolerate any spiritual being in my home that is of the evil variety. I have no tolerance for evil in any manner in which it tries to present itself. I'm pretty sure that the spirits hanging out here are friendly. And a bit mischievous.

There was one night, not too long ago, maybe 5 years, that I felt something moving on the bed. I thought it was Tucker but, there was nothing there. Not even Tuck. I brushed it off as that active imagination of mine and began drifting back to sleep. Suddenly, I felt the movement again. This time, it felt as though someone had lifted the covers and began sliding their hand towards me. Oh! Crap! The next thing I knew, something that wasn't there was PULLING MY LEG! Much like I am pulling yours right now.

Or am I?

Dang, I think I just scared myself.

    1. Well, remember, I have to be careful not to upset the girls. LOL

  2. I do believe. You had me from the beginning. Great job.

  3. Well, I DO believe, so you had me going too! LOL

  4. I also believe as my house has a ghost in it, that said you had me going too for a bit

    1. Hahaha! I have seen things, but I'm not sure what the deal is.

  5. Fell for it...hook, line, and sinker!

    1. LOL A lot of people did! They were yelling at me about it at school. In a good way, of course. :) Thanks for reading!

  6. Of course, I believe in spookies, but the first thing that would have come to my mind would have been a rapist got in the house, not a ghostie, if a hand started creeping up my leg under my covers. I wouldn't freak over the ghost.

    I realize you were kidding with your post, but David and I have both had experiences with "things unseen". I know my mother-in-law thinks I'm nuts to believe in ghosts, but the Bible backs me up on it. Why would He tell us not to conjure them up or beckon them if they didn't exist? There was one in the house where David spent his teen years that they called "Press" because the person that used to live in their house was named Preston. You could hear the floor creak like it does when people walk on it. I could feel something when I was upstairs in that house, but I have to thank an elderly cousin for that because she was always threatening me with goblins getting me if I went upstairs at her house. :)

    The house that we currently live in has had various "things" here over the past 11 years. The elderly woman that lived here was removed from her home to a nursing home, as I understand it, in another state by her surviving son. Her other son had died a bad death years beforehand. I believe that he was not at rest and he was mad that his brother took their mama out of her home. He was mad about us being here in his mama's house. We went through several computers, 2 washers and 2 dryers, a fridge, about five microwaves, and a stove during our first 6 years here. Once his mama died, everything calmed down. I could almost feel his angry spirit leave the house. I figure she died and they were able to be together again. He knew she was okay then and could rest. I just got goosebumps all of a sudden typing that.

    There have been other "things" here, too, that kept my kids scared off an on over the years. The worst one was "Victor". He scared them something fierce, especially the girls. I don't know anything about the history of this property here other than that the doctor's widow (his name was not Victor) had this house built the year that I was born and she never remarried. Neither of their sons was named Victor. I will probably never know that story.

    I have always been incredibly sensitive and can feel things that others aren't aware of and know some things before they happen. Some think that is nuts, but it is true. I was told that I have the gift of discernment. I guess this covers feeling spookies, too.

    Sorry this is so long. You did a great job on holding our attention with this post! Have a blessed day.

    1. Oh, I believe in them. There was one in the husband's grandmother's house that has scared all of us at one time or another. Your tales are fascinating! Of course, it is broad daylight right now. LOL Thanks!


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment! It makes me feel connected to everyone even though we may live far apart! Have a wonderful day!
