The Invisible Friend? It was almost a year since we think the ghost of the toddler Elizabeth haunted my daughter's bedroom when yet another unexplained experience occurred. One sleepless night, I was down in my office working on my websites when I heard a noise coming from upstairs. It sounded like the pitter-patter of little feet running from room to room. It sounded too large to be mice, but too small to be my husband or older children. It couldn't be my toddler, because he never wakes without seeking immediate comfort from Mommy or Daddy. He would be crying if he were by himself in the dark. The footsteps continued for awhile, so I finally logged off and headed upstairs to investigate the sounds. As I turned off the last light on the first floor, I was alone in the darkness...or so I thought. At that moment, I heard someone giggling on the stairs above me. "Who's there?" I called out. "It's me", my toddler giggled. I couldn't believe it. He was alone in the pitch dark and he was happy. I asked him what he was doing and he said he had been playing with someone. As I met him upstairs, I saw that the doors to each of the bedrooms that had all been closed earlier were now all opened, but everyone else in the house was still sound asleep. I asked him what he had been doing and he said "I was playing with Bria" (what he calls his older sister); however, Bria was sound asleep. He said that Bria had gone with him into Mayah's room (what he calls his other sister)and they were watching a movie together. The TV was on, but we know he had been the only one awake. Several toys were out of place, showing the trail of fun he was having while playing with his imaginary friend in the darkness of the early morning hours. Was it simply his imagination or something else?
Beautiful picture and wonderful happenings.
