Last week I had a dream of my mom. I couldn't see her but I was speaking with her; sort of like a phone call and she was away on vacation but not dead; just away on vacation or something. She asked me why I decided to give my grandmother's jewelry to Aunt L and I responded that it wasn't right that she kept it all. She didn't sound angry; she was simply asking. I also remember asking her if God is real and she responded "yes."
My best friend had a dream of my mom the next night where twin A was sitting in a tattoo chair and my mom looked at my friend, pointed to my daughters shoulder blade and the tattoo was of a rose with an angel in the middle of the petals and the stem was my mom's handwriting "I love you, (my mom's nickname for my daughter), love, maw maw." Normally that could be considered a coincidence; however, my friend did NOT know my mom called her by a different name nor the spelling. When my friend told me this my daughter asked how her name was spelled. I didn't understand why my daughter asked this but my daughter knew the spelling is different from how I spell it. When she told us how it was spelled I questioned her on it. My friend was adamant it was spelled a different way and then,asked who was (nickname)? My best friend knew we were going to sign a consent form for twin A to get a tattoo but she didn't know what my daughter wanted, the placement, or about her using my mom's handwriting. My daughter is using a birthday card from my mom to have my mom's handwriting tattooed and has a print out of an angel she wants to go with my mom's handwriting so she went to get it. She gave it to me and the nickname is spelled exactly as it was in my friends dream. I was gobsmacked because even I didn't know my mom had spelled it differently in the card!
The next evening, Twin B cut out a paper crown from card stock and placed it on the coffee table. All of a sudden both girls said "mom, the crown is moving! Mawmaw is making the crown move" They told me it had moved twice and only about an inch both times. I thought it was from the ceiling fan or air conditioning vent so I turned both off and said "mom, if you're moving the crown, can you do it again so I can see?" This time, instead of the crown moving an inch or so, it moved, with force, about 8 inches off the table to the floor. (We got a ruler and measured) I then put the crown back on the table exactly where it was before and a few seconds later it slid off the table again and fell to the floor.
I watchd too many ghost hunting shows years ago so I got my phone and started recording. I said "mom, is that you who moved the crown off the table? I asked a few more questions about some odd things that happened and then said "I love you, momma" when I played it back I can clearly hear my mom's voice respond "yes" to the moving of the crown and "I love you too" right before I ended the recording.
Then today, while visiting my dad, he told me he hears my mom in her bedroom at night (they had separate bedrooms due to my dad needing a hospital bed and oxygen tank and my mom needing a sleep number adjustable bed and c-pap.) So, I went into her room with my phone recording and asked if she was who my dad is hearing at night and she responded "yes". I also said to her my dad is having a hard time because at night he hears her and when she goes to check her things are still as she left them intending to come home. That's when he remembers she isn't with us anymore so he wants me to start going through her things this week; it's too hard on him to see her clothes and things left out. I told her I don't think I'm ready but I will do it for my dad. When we played the recording back we hear her voice saying "you." It kind of sounds like "thank you" but there is a definite "you."
All these things are so coincidental that's it's hard for me to believe it is, in fact, simply coincidence. Am I so desperate to communicate with my mom that I'm going crazy? My husband is the one who first who listened to the recording from today and picked up the voice. We both agree it sounds like my mom, only it's more of a whisper. It validated he hears my mom's voice, too, so that makes me feel better.
What do y'all think? Is it just my desperation to communicate with my mom or could it be real?
