Ghost Sighting

I'm a little excited because I think my daughter saw a ghost. In my house!

I had always heard that kids can still "see" and sense things that us adults ignore, so this has me intrigued.

On Sunday she got upset about 3 times in a row at the same place in the house-right where our hallway enters either the kitchen or the living room. I went through all the usual culprits-"Does something hurt? Did you bump your toe? Fall? Did Raven scratch you?... " No obvious reason for the upset.

When it happened again in the late morning, I went through my questions again, and then finally asked, "Was it a ghost?"... "Yes!"

We've never talked about ghosts before, but this was suddenly the answer. It was a male ghost and she wanted him to leave, so we asked him to leave, opened the door for him, and said good-bye.

Until later in the evening it happened again, so then Scott lit a candle and brought out an angel to put in the spot where she kept getting freaked out. So far so good.

It was an interesting experience. I'm not convinced it was a bad spirited ghost, but if it is who I think it is, yes he would look scary. A couple of days before, I had a dream of my grandfather who had passed away years ago. He was tall and skinny, big beard, and was a trapper and a bit of a hermit. We were always a bit scared of him growing up, but if it was him, Hi Grandpa-it looks like Scarlett has met you!
