I was talking this morning about how I felt bad about the fact that my Mom spent her last months in a nursing home. I've been thinking about my Mom a lot lately, and I've been missing her, and I've been thinking about how maybe I could have done things differently.
While I was talking to my daughter Katie about all this Jayden said, "She's okay. You were sitting on the computer and I was standing here and she came next to me and said, 'Tell Umma I'm alright', so you don't have to worry about her. She's happy now."
He said he sees her a lot. He says he sees lots of people, and he said they don't really talk to him, he just knows what they are saying.
Lately, Jayden has been 'scared', he says he's afraid to go anywhere by himself, even into the next room without me being by his side. I asked him why and I asked, "Are you afraid of ghosts or something?" And he said, "Of course not. I only see good spirits."
And then my daughter said, "Oh, you only see spirits that you know." And Jayden said, "No, I see spirits I don't know, but they are all good, and they are all here to protect the world. And sometimes when someone dies I see them helping those people. They don't want the people to be scared."
I don't know if this kid has a wild imagination or what. But sometimes he comes out with this kind of information, and he says it so 'matter-of-fact', and like it's the most natural thing in the world to him.
'Sorry I haven't been visiting much. Kids have been sick and lots of other things going on too. 'Hope everyone is well. Love and Prayers to all ~
