A ghostly girl :: Encouragement from an unknown young lady
Do you believe in ghosts? Spirits? Have you been visited?
While I was working to set up the online auction for TOO SOON last week, I received a visit. It was exactly the visit I needed.
I had been at the computer for about an hour and was both physically and mentally tired. I wasn't sure if I was doing the right things. I was talking myself out of doing a show at all.
Then she came.
Something to my right caught my eye. I was sitting in a dark room with my screen the only light, and yet there was a bright light source by my right shoulder. I turned my head to look and there she was . . . a young lady who was maybe eight or nine years old. Her expression was joyful and ebullient. She smiled at me shyly as she tucked a blond curl behind her ear.
"It's really beautiful. Thank you for your help."
She touched my arm and giggled. I felt pressure on my arm, and yet I couldn't see her hand.
In the moments I needed to register what happened - to realize I hadn't been alone in that room - she disappeared. I waited, hoping she might return or send a friend.
The room was quiet. Quiet and dark.
I don't know if I really saw, heard, and felt what I believe I saw, heard, and felt. I suppose there isn't a way to know. I can see her face and hear her voice so clearly. I do know that she said something that I needed to hear. I so much want this work to be meaningful to someone other than me. I want to help bring even a moment of serenity to a mother, a grandparent, a father, or a sibling. She said it was beautiful. She said it was helpful.
That was what I needed to hear.
