Then you will enjoy this…

Quick backstory: My 2-year-old granddaughter is named after a boy (it’s not the exact same name; it was “feminized” to fit my GD) who was my youngest DD’s BFF in high school. In October 2004, her BFF was diagnosed with an aggressive form of cancer and died within two weeks of the diagnosis. My DD was devastated to say the least to the point where my H and I sought counseling for her. Naming her DD after him was wonderful; her BFF’s mom was ecstatic and thought it a honorable remembrance of her son.

This past weekend, my DD’s BFF’s brother posted a picture on Facebook of himself and his brother (her BFF) from “back in the day.” My GD was sitting next to DD, but watching a cartoon. Suddenly she turned to my DD’s tablet, pointed to DD’s BFF and said, “Mommy, I KNOW him!” DD asked, “Where do you know him from?” GD says, “He hugged me, Mommy!” DD asked her where he was when he hugged her and she just kept repeating, “He hugged me!” About an hour later, she asked to see the picture of the man who hugged her, so DD brought it up. She said, “He hugged me, Mommy, and he’s with Gabby! He is her friend.” (Gabby is my DD’s first DD, who went to Heaven when DD was 10 weeks pregnant.) My DD never told GD her angel baby’s name; she has told her on a few occasions that she has a big sister in Heaven, but that was months ago.

I posted this story because I read the pain of a poster this morning who has two angel babies. My DD told me that she now knows that her angel baby is not only in a wonderful place, but she has a buddy (guardian angel?)! And I think he hugged my GD to acknowledge that she is named after him. Just my opinion, of course, but it is very comforting when we miss the ones we love - to know they are happy. I love hearing stories of children who have the privilege of getting messages from the other side.

I can say with absolute certainty that I don't know what I believe. I do think we know far less than we think we do, and it will all be explained one day. Although not in our lifetimes.

Many cultures who believe in reincarnation will take the statements of children far more seriously than western culture. I often had young kids say things like, "when I was a boy" or "when I was old and lived in a blue house" and then go on to tell a story about an event they "remembered."

When I was very little I was surrounded by adults, no kids. I had 3(?) imaginary playmates. Much later, when I was around 14, we got a box full of documents and photos from very distant relatives as they were emigrating from the then USSR to Israel. In the box was a photo of a young boy. I looked at it and said "Oh! That's Nonny!" (one of my friends.) The translation on the back read "name" born 1935 Died 1940. So, a young relative of mine apparently "came" from Kiev to be my friend in 1956 in South Jersey.

Wow. What an amazing story! I've never experienced anything like this (except once after my beloved grandfather died I could've sworn I smelled his cologne) but I do believe it can happen. The world is full of mysteries.

I believe it. Nice story.

When my son was 3, he came to me first thing in the morning and said that Grandma Rose had visited him last night and said she would watch over him.

Keep in mind that Rose lived a thousand miles from us, and he had only met her once a few months earlier.

Five minutes later, the phone rings and it's my sister telling me that Rose passed in the night.

Thats a lovely story.
Whenever I see my 8 month old jabbering away to someone I can't see I always say hello to them too. I imagine most of the time it's my Grandma who died about 20 years ago now, she always had stories to tell and I know she would be back with us as often as she could be.

What a beautiful story. Gives me the chills. What a smart DGD you have too.

I could've sworn I smelled his cologne

^^^this. I smell my beloved Dad's every now and then. Used to make me wonder if I was losing it. Now I just smile and say hi Dad.

Anyone watch "Long Island Medium"?? She will make you believe!
