Yesterday I visited MIL and took some hand sewing with me. When I got there, she was sitting in the hallway and when she saw me, her first words were, "9 people came to visit me from Canada!" She hates sitting in the hallway and I hate for her to do that as well, but that is what they do, park the residents there, all lined up after lunch.
So I wheeled her into her room and I sat on the bed and listened to her talk for an hour while I finished the binding on a bag I was making. Now, the fact that she thinks 9 people came to visit is something that no one pays any attention to. But I knew better and I sat and listened. My MIL is very spiritual and she has been having angel visitations for many years. She has long thought it is real and we have thought she was crazy or hallucinating. But our pastor told us that she has a special gift and seems to be able to talk with the spirit world. Someone suggested to us that she may even be a medium and I now believe there is some merit to this.
So as she was talking about the 9 visitors, one of whom was her mother, I knew it was real. I believe that her relatives are trying to prepare her to come to them. She said her mother was brought there and put in another room and she so wished she could visit with her. But the Lord told her she couldn't talk with them. She also mentioned seeing Jesus and I believe her.
At any rate, I gave her much comfort just by sitting with her and letting her talk. When I got ready to leave, I helped her get into bed and rest. Back again today.
