Definition of Ghost

According to google, the definition of a 'ghost' is an apparition of a dead person that is believed to appear or become manifest to the living, typically as a nebulous image.

Apparition of Mother

I heard a loud shriek coming from the upper living room and ran to see what was going on. My twin sister was on face book and yelled for me to come see something our older sister just posted. "Get your cheats on for this Linda," Laura proclaimed. "You wont believe it until you see it." I could see tears welling up in her eyes and knew it was something big.

Throughout the years since mom and dad's passing, each sibling has had their share of heavenly visits. Each contact is unique to the relationship between mom, dad and their adult child. The latest such incident happened to my older sister this past weekend. She was standing at her balcony window when she noticed a wispy figure hovering above the lake. She captured the ethereal image which I've uploaded here. She knew it was an angelic sighting but after closer inspection realized it looked just like our mother. It didn't surprise her to know mom would make an appearance at this critical time in her life. She was struggling with addiction, just as my mother did when she was alive. Mom knew her eldest daughter needed her and made an appearance. Love definitely has no boundaries; even when we've gone to the other side.

Why I believe mother and father have appeared to me and my siblings

I believe my mother and father have shown themselves to me and my siblings because of our traumatic childhood. Our childhood wasn't always an easy one. I am one of five siblings, with my twin sister and I being the youngest of the brood. I have been told, that although mom and dad were heavy drinkers before we arrived, it became increasingly severe after we were born. Life at our house became very unsafe and chaotic as their alcoholism took over.

Sadly, by the time I was nine years old, I lost my mom to this insidious disease. She was only thirty nine years old. Losing a mother so young was one of the hardest things I've ever experienced. Dad continued to drink after her death, despite pleas from his kids to stop. After several years and going through treatment five times, dad was able to stop drinking for the remainder of his life.
