31 Days of Spook – Story Submission

23 Oct

Hello my spooky friends.  Thank you so very much for staying with me during my 31 Days of Spook. Have you been enjoying the stories, the thrills, the things that go bump in the night?   Today, we have another guest story submission.  This one is from my friend Bree.  Do you know her?  She’s Reilly and Denny’s mom.  If you don’t know them, you have so got to visit their blog.  They are great.  And personally, I don’t think those pooches take a bad picture – I’m just saying.  Please make it a point to visit my friend Bree – tell her that Bacon sent you.  This is her tale – enjoy my friends!

“When I was very little – only 4 years, we lived in London in a very old house. One morning I woke up and was very sick and feeling very scared but then this little old lady came into room and sat on the bed talking to me. She told me some wonderful stories in her soft Scottish accent and she would sing to me too – and lull me to sleep. Every morning she would come and visit. She was very small only about 4′ 5”, had grey/white hair pulled back tightly and wore a little cap like the the one Andy Capp wears. She also had a little white pipe – like the one Popeye had. She wore a long black skirt with big pockets on the front of it, big brown lace up boots and had layers of sweaters on. She smelled of lavender and even to this day I still think of her when I smell it.

My Mom came in one morning and asked me who I was talking too. I didn’t know her name so I pointed to her and said, “Grandah”. Mom looked around and couldn’t see anyone and yet there she was sitting on the end on the bed.  Whenever any of my brothers or sister was sick she would appear and we always knew she was about the house because we suddenly would smell the lavender. Our Mom too smelled the lavender but never saw or knew who Grandah was until one day she showed us a very old photo of our great grandma and it was her!  She had been dead for over thirty years and yet there she would come visit us when ever we were sick and we knew she would make us feel better.”

    Awwww….what a sweet story – maybe a tiny bit spooky but Mom says little kids are more “sensitive” to spirits because nobody’s told them they CAN’T see them…..we all can….if we believe.

    Hugs, Sammy

      That is so true and the same thing my mom says. Young kids just don’t know any better. XOXO – Bacon

    It is not a spooky story but sometimes I think people only think of ghosts in a bad way – and that is not always true

    I loved that story and so did Kali and mom. Mom says she wants to come back as that little old lady and have fun with children and make them feel better and laugh through the sickness and pain.

    I loved that story. Lavender is a lovely herb. Have you smelt lavender Bacon? I have two pots of it and all the critters like it. ❤

      I ❤️ the smell of lavender. Mom has a bedtime spray that she uses in my room at night to help me sleep. Dad says its so I won’t smell like a pig but I don’t believe him – do you Auntie Sharon? XOXO – Bacon
