The Scent Of Roses

I have a ghost story for you in honor of the month of love.

Stop over at Patricia Altner's Vampire Bites to read a true story about soul mates whose love transcended even death.

When Pat asked me for a post that dealt with the paranormal and romance, this was the first thing that came to mind. It happened many, many years ago, but the memory has stuck with me.

Leave me a comment and tell me your ghost story.

What a sweet story Maria!

I don't have any personal experience with a least not that I'm aware of. My best friend growing up had a great one.

When she was a baby her family lived in an old house, her mom talked about how something was always falling off somewhere in the house. Anyway, one night my friend woke up crying, she stopped just as her mom reached the door. Of course, her mom wanted to double check her, so opened the door. What should she see but my friend floating above the rocking chair (which was slowly rocking) in a position like she was being cradled.

Not sure if I would have been freaked out seeing my child floating in mid-air or not but my friend's mom said all she had was a sense of peace. They never saw anything like that again but they were more aware of the ghost afterwards. Guess the ghost was like an extra set of hands and eyes for my friend's mom.

I'm pretty sure I would have freaked out.

We lived in an old house once and the old lady who owned it before us died there. Once, I was coming down the stairs and I slipped. I just knew I was going to land hard, but instead I felt someone grabbing me from behind and that slowed my momentum so I could reach the handrail again.

I still think it was that little old lady. She saved my noggin.

--But your floating baby story gives me goosebumps.

Great story!
