going nuts?

youngestdaughterAugust 16, 2009

When my Momma died last year, my sister gave me her watch. It had been my Dad's but for years Mom wore it because it has a big face. Well I need glasses to see a small face and my sister thought I would get a lot of use out of Momma watch. I have, but everytime I would ware it I would get this funny feeling.I didn't know if I was having a spiritual expierence or not. I could SMELL my Momma. I didnt connect it to the watch untill today. It still smells like her favorite perfume! Up until today I was just getting a slight whiff and the smell seemed to come from no where, and I would cry just remembering her. I would ask the open air, Momma are you there? Well, Her watch was there, seems that every time I waved that arm near my face I could smell it. On one hand its is very funny and I can see her laughing deep and hardy with my Dad about it. I was always their family clown.

On the other hand, I wish there was still some mystery, some hope of ... oh I dont know. Has anyone ever had a similaur expierence? Thanks Vicki

Vicki, no you aren't going nuts! That is a very sweet story. My mom passed over 3 years ago now, and I still wake up hoping I just had a bad dream,...it can't be. The world cannot keep spinning without my mom here with me. I have some of her jewelery that still has her scent on it. And not the same thing, but the first year after her passing I awoke to a strong smell of a perfume in the air. Not man made perfume but a smell of a field of fresh wildflowers. Twice this happend and both times lasted for 30-40 seconds. As the scent faded I got a whiff of fresh cinammon the first time and the second time a definite odor of cigarette smoke. My mom is still being stubborn and smoking even in heaven? Or a sign of a different nature. I don't know. The cinammon made me laugh because once she bought a tiny vial of cinammon extract that you were supposed to put on a decorative whisk broom (don't ask, a country decoration of some type!) and she accidently spilled the whole thing. The house smelled of cinammon for weeks and we sure did laugh about that!

I haven't had any visits from her lately except in dreams. She was the person I loved the most and she loved me more than anybody and the hurt and pain never go away.

Vicki, I just want to say there are others out here that hurt like you do. All we can do is honor their memory and live a good life. I just know that I'm over 1200 days closer to being with her in heaven than the day she passed over.

Dear Duane,
Thank you. Thank you so much. I have had several expierences with my Dad before my Mom died. I can not explaine the expierence to others, but I dont think I'd have to with you. I have only seen my Mom in one dream and she was crying because I have not done something I had promised to do.
Thank you for being so understanding. Grief is truly an expierence one must have personal expierence with to even start to comprehend the depth and sense of loss and longing. I' so sorry that you too understand, but I am greatful, Thank you, Vikci
