    Have you ever had something happen to you that you can't explain? I'll begin this tread.

    One year to celebrate Secretary's Day, all members of our office staff went to our "haunted house" restaurant, by the women's request, for lunch. We have a restaurant in our town that has a reputation of being haunted, some think by children. As we ate our lunch, we discussed the local talk about this restaurant, and I took the tack that the rumor probably wasn't true, but it surely was a good advertising ploy because it drew people to the restaurant out of curiosity .

    The day we went to this restaurant was a cold, rainy day toward the end of April, with wind blowing the rain and making umbrellas necessary. I had driven to the restaurant separately because I wanted to stop at the courthouse downtown and pay the May installment of my property taxes before going on to the restaurant. I always keep all the doors in my car locked, and when it rains, definitely all the windows are rolled up. After the lunch, I went to my car to return to the office. As I started the car up and started to drive toward the exit, I heard a rattling on the passenger's side of the car. I looked over and the door on the passenger's side was slightly ajar, hadn't completely opened yet, and the window had been rolled all the way down, and rain had started splattering on the leather upholstery. The only explanation I can come up with is that those kid ghosts had the last laugh on me after all.

    When my oldest girl was 3, my younger girl was about 18 mo., and I was a huge, cumbersome whale with my Davy in my belly, we went to McDonald's to let the kids play in the playland. I had the two girls out of their carseats, and was turning around to lock up the car. Little 18-month Emma went running into the parking lot. I chugged my pregnant body around, trying to reach her, but I couldn't quite grab her, and a car was barreling into the lot. It was one of those moments where time seems to advance in slow motion, where you can hear your heart thumping in your ears, and your voice sounds like a vinyl record with rpm problems. I called to her, but she didn't stop. The car was coming closer, closer, and my baby wouldn't stop! Suddenly, she was thrust backward, and the car skimmed by, inches from her chubby little body.

    Here's the weird thing. I can see it in my mind. She didn't stop herself with her legs. It was like she ran into a chest-high barrier. Her head and torso recoiled while her legs kept going for a step. She just stood perfectly still while the car passed, didn't run back to me. Call me a Jesus Freak, but I really believe she was saved by her guardian angel that day.

    Another story...
    One summer evening, in the "gloaming," I was driving down a rural road toward my house. I was probably about 20 at the time, and still lived at home with my parents. I drove slowly, enjoying the purple- and blue-stained sky, lightly peppered with stars. Cow silhouettes grazed beside black bulked hay rolls, and the frogs were singing in the trees. Up in the sky, I noticed a star moving, very quickly, faster than any airplane I had ever seen. Suddenly, it stopped, midair, hovering, then jerked upward at a 90-degree-angle before speeding away. I was totally freaked.

    I drove home, and my 16-year-old sister was there with her boyfriend. They had seen it, too, and were jabbering about the "UFO." That was the weirdest aircraft I have ever seen. We live about 100 miles south of Wright Patterson Air Force Base. My theory is that is was some kind of military plane being tested over the farmlands where it was less likely to be seen.

    After I first got divorced a few years ago, and I was still in that "life is ending" phase of the pain, I was laying in bed one night, feeling like utter crap, when this outline of an angelic face appeared a couple feet above me in the darkness, pursed it's lips, and blew a puff of air down on me. I actually felt it. It was cool air, and as soon as it hit me, I felt enveloped in love. Believe it....... or not.

    As a young child - 3 or 4 and into my 5th year, I suffered what now are called 'night terrors'. I'd get out of bed, still sleeping, but in utter panic. I'd be walking along the walls, looking for a doorway to somewhere, crying and screaming in terror. After some time, I'm unsure if it were months or weeks of this, or even years...But I remember one instance of my parents huddled around me on bended knee praying for me. After they were finished, they put me back in bed. The lights in my room were off as they tucked me in - I slept in the bottom of a bunk-bed under -Cp.

    Sometime after they left, I half-awoke to a tingling feeling. As I opened my eyes in the dark room, I could 'just' make out the shape of a large hand reaching down to me from across my body. Think if you were kneeling beside a bed, facing the person sleeping on their back, and you reached your right hand over to touch their chest/heart area. When the hand made contact with me I felt electricuted, but no pain. It was as if my room became the surface of the sun because of the brightness. My head was swimming, I felt as though I were floating. I looked across the room towards my door to see, just for an instant, the figure of a bearded man wearing a robe. He was standing with arms to his side, palms facing outward. We made eye contact for a brief second, and then he was gone. The room was dark. I believe I've never suffered another 'night terror' from that moment on.

    Fast forward about 8 or 9 years and I was 13, walking to school. Not paying attention as I approached a cross street I stepped off the curb JUST as speeding car ran the stop sign, and pulled out onto the main road. Before my foot hit the ground, I felt like (get his, mom4) I hit a chest-high barrier. My arms and head sorta bounced forward, but my body stopped - JUST in time.

    :)

    This is about my mom not me. We, Mom, Dad and brother were watching tv.
    My mom laid down on the floor where she fell asleep.

    Some time went by, 30-40 minutes maybe. All of the sudden my mom raised up very abruptly and said, “What”! We told her no one had said anything to her. Then she said, “I just heard my daddy call me”. 30 minutes later we got the call that my grandfather her dad, had died a few hours earlier.
