I was sitting on my bed looking at pamphlets about wedding venues for my daughter. I was alone. I was up & dressed. It was 9 in the morning. I suddenly heard, "It's a surprise! There's three!" It was very loud. I was so stunned. It took me only a second to realize it was my mother's voice. She had been deceased about 12 years. The voice seemed to come from the bottom of the stairs. At the bottom is the room where my mother passed. It took me a moment to get up & look down the stairs. I was sure she was standing there. When I finally did, the hallway was empty. I just sat frozen for several minutes before I considered what she had said. "...surprise-there's 3."
What did that mean? I considered that she meant we would have 3 grandchildren but there were none on the horizon. I spent 10 years wondering what she meant.
The daughter whose wedding I was planning failed and ended in divorce. We were devistated. My younger girl married a few years later
And then the unexpected occured. My first daughter met a nice young man & they were married. It was then, 10 years after this message from my mother, that she meant "You will plan 3 weddings." even tho I only had 2 daughters. We didn't know if our daughter would be alright after the divorce. It nearly destroyed her. I think my mother was trying to tell me that she would be alright & she would marry again.
Since then, I have heard my name called out load several times. I was completely alone. One night my husband heard his name called. He turned to see who was there. He said it was right behind him.
