Granny in heaven...

is it really you?!?! Granny in heaven is my mom who passed away from breast cancer 9 years ago...After Brenly was born I wanted to make sure that she knew who my mom was and how special she was to me! So we would talk about granny in heaven all the time!! In fact when Brenly was about 3 years old...We were in the car..about 6 months after my uncle passed away from a massive heart attack..and this was our conversation in the car...
Brenly: Mommy, why is Gruncle (great uncle) sleeping on his bed in heaven?
ME: Because he is in heaven with Jesus...
Brenly: Why does his bed have flowers on it?
ME: Because they were pretty and we thought that Gruncle would like them & isn't it neat that Granny and Gruncle are getting to play together in heaven with Jesus?
Brenly: (very matter of factly) Granny isn't in heaven!!!
ME: yes, baby, she is in heaven with Gruncle and Jesus!
Brenly: NO MOMMY, she and Jesus are at my house...I SAW'D them...they are playing in my room!!!

YIKES...how awesome and mysterious all at the same time!!

So last week, we were at my brothers house for "my birthday" party and Baylee was walking across the living room...She looks straight up at "something" and starts having this serious conversation..with WHOMEVER it is that she sees...She then pauses as if she is listening to WHOMEVER and then nods her head as if she agrees!
After several minutes of talking ...she goes about her business...I looked at Chad and Ronni and he said that she has done this like 3-4 times...and he guarantees that it is mom that she is talking to!

So tonight after I emerged from my bedroom...We were sitting in the living room and Avery was sitting with Ray (Brenly had fallen asleep in my lap!) And Avery looked over the couch and audibly says “Granny” and then looks at Ray and I...Ray asks her again what she was saying and she said “Granny” Ray asked her where she was and she stands up on the couch and points toward the front door! We look at each other, wondering if she is really “seeing” Granny in heaven! Ray asked her to get down and show us where she was. Avery gets down, walks over by the kitchen table and just stands there and looks up!!!

Could it be that Brenda has come to visit all of her grandbabies within a month of each other!!!

CRAZY...but how neat if the girls really are getting a glimpse of the woman that I love so much!!

Granny, if it WAS you...know that we love you and we miss you...Come back more often! I know they love to see you!!


P.S. I don't believe in "ghosts" But I do believe in angels...AND I KNOW that my momma is one!

Of COURSE it was her! You think she is going to let her baby girl be sick and her not be right beside you the whole time??? You were better last night, so she was walking out the front door, and Avery was telling Granny bye, probably! How cool...

Oh gosh .. her and Maci must share a gift. Maybe they should go into business together in like 20 years. That's cool your mom pop's in on her .. I totally beleive.

How crazy! I don't know what to believe when it comes to "spirits" and what not. All I know is this...

My first car I owned was my Nanny's. I got it when she passed away. A few years later, I got a new car. One day, I got in my new car and it smelled EXACTLY like my Nanny. So, there is definitely something going on!
