I have been meaning to update for a few days now, but I have been so busy (and exhausted) lately that it kept slipping my mind.
First of all, a few nights ago I was laying in bed. I couldn't sleep for the life of me, so I was just laying in bed gazing off towards the little "nook" where my sink is and where the bathroom and closet doors are. I was daydreaming, when all of a sudden I saw a grey/black object move near the wall. The best way to explain it is that is looked much like a hand of someone batting at a fly. It kind of came from the wall and went out and down, before disappearing. I thought it was odd because it was large and much like a shadow. I just kind of let my gaze stay on that area for a while before resuming my daydreaming. A few moments later, I saw a white "mass" on the wall near where I had seen the previous object. It almost looked like a reflection, but I had NO lights on in my room and the only light that comes in the window due to it's location are lights from the occasional plane flying overhead. I thought maybe my eyes were messing with me, so I just sat there staring at the area where it had appeared (it was only there a quick moment) and tried to figure out what it was. As I sat there perplexed, I was startled by what I can only describe as a red orb. It appeared on the wall near the ceiling and seemed to radiate some peculiar white light from it before disappearing. It seriously made me jump because it basically flashed on the wall. I can't really explain it.
The following night, I was sleeping on the couch. Something woke me. I am not sure what. I laid awake for a moment, just listening to the house. All was silent. As I curled up to go back to sleep, I heard a loud groan. It sounded much like the sound someone makes when they stretch out really well. I thought it was my dog, but when I finally located him, he was much to far away to have made the sound. The groan seriously sounded like someone was standing right next to me.

When I am asleep and my husband wants to wake me, he simply taps me gently on the leg. I am a very light sleeper, so this always wakes me immediately.
My husband is currently on a two week break from his day job since he works for the school district. This means he is home during the day lately and has been letting me rest up if and when I need it.
Several times recently, I have been napping in the bedroom and have been awaken by the feeling of someone tapping on my leg. I always roll over expecting to see my husband standing there (since he is the only one who wakes me this way) and l always find myself in an empty room. I always get up anyway when this happen and always find that my children in some way need me because my husband has passed out on the couch...lol. The first few times it happened I thought nothing of it. However, this morning changed that for me.
I am overcoming the flu. When my husband got home from his night job he immediately told me to go upstairs and get some more rest if I felt I needed it. Of course, I headed up to bed. Hours later I was awaken by the familiar tapping on the leg. I rolled over, found an empty room and decided to get up. As I left the bedroom I found my six year old autistic son standing in his room crying. I was wondering why my husband hadn't tended to him, so I called out to him. No answer. I called again. No answer. My middle son then came up wondering what the commotion was about and ran downstairs to get his daddy upon my request. Up the stairs came a bleary-eyed husband, who had clearly fallen asleep. Upon going downstairs, I found the living room trashed and my two year old in an extremely dirty diaper. My husband insisted he didn't intend on sleeping and that he must have "dozed off". Mmmhmm.
When I thought about it, this tapping feeling ONLY happens when my husband sends me off to sleep and falls asleep himself and my children need me. I think someone is looking out for us and waking me when needed. Who? I have no idea. I am internally grateful though.
(I should also add then I am a very light sleeper, so when I know someone else is tending to my children I go into my bedroom and close the door and put a fan on high to drown out the noise. My husband also has servers in our bedroom that made a fair amount of noise, so if the door is closed I don't hear ANYTHING outside the room unless it is really loud. Just adding that in case anyone wonders who a light sleeper would need a ghostly friend to wake her when all hell breaks loose...lol.)
