A couple of months back I was lying on the couch getting comfy for an afternoon nap. My kiddos were in their bedroom which is on the other side of the wall i was facing. I could hear them giggling and telling jokes to one another and it made me smile to hear them getting along so well. (which seems to be a rarity now days for they are 9 and 8) As they conversated back and forth, I heard something else. From directly behind me I heard a tiny little voice say, "Mommy?" I froze as I frantically tried to listen for what my kids were saying. They were now discussing how gross school lunches are, and then the little voice called again, "mommy?" It was so close i quickly turned over to face the direction it had come from.. all i could see was my empty living room and kitchen. Unnerved i got up and found something to do to preoccupy my mind as i purposefully ignored that i had just experienced the strange happening. This was not the first nor the last time that happened. Once while working in an ambulance station i heard someone whisper "help". Other times the voice would call my name. When i was little and i ignored it it would say it louder. My mother told me not to answer the voice and to pretend it wasnt speaking and so i have ever time it happens. it doesnt happen very often but on rare occasions it does and i just play like i dont hear it. Still i have always wondered what it could be and why it chose me to bother. I live in Louisiana so i come from a very superstitious family which is why my mother was so adament about not acknowledging what ever this is. Has anyone else ever had this happen to them?
