The lady with the glasses

Location: N/A

By: Diana

My husbands mother passed away in a tragic car accident when he was just a little boy so he grew up most of his life in foster care and different places. I never met his mother but heard many stories about her and how she loved babies. We have 4 children ages 17, 14, 11 and 1 year old. When my 2 oldest were about 2 years old the would alway tell me how the lady comes in their room at night and talks to them and tells them to be good for mommy and daddy and I just thought they were dreaming until one day I found a picture of my husbands mother that they never saw and they both said Hey thats they lady with the glasses on that comes to my room. I got goosebumps, then our 3rd child told me almost the same story when she was 3 now when the baby was born we were having trouble getting her to sleep through the night until one night I woke up to hear her cradle creaking and i went to check on her and the cradle was rocking by itself and it was locked. I feel safe in knowing that she is always with us and I always felt so sad that she couldnt enjoy her grandchildren but now I know she is enjoying them.
