My mom always tells me these stories when she’s in a certain kind of mood and they made me feel special, but I wonder if these are more common than I think?
My first story requires some background knowledge. My mom is an addict, if there’s a drug you can think of my mom has done it, she’s getting much better, but she’ll always have those cravings. I have an older half-sister who was born with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome, it only affected her legs, she has metal rods in them so she can walk. She’s still very intelligent and is otherwise perfectly functioning. My mom did put her up for adoption, and my grandparents adopted her.
But, when I was conceived, my mom knew. She told me that she woke up in the morning (presumably the morning after having sex with my dad) and was looking at herself in the mirror. When she felt this presence surround her, starting at her head and traveling down. She described this presence as pure peace and love. Then, this presence moved into her womb and in that moment she knew, she just knew, that she was pregnant and in that moment she also lost all of her cravings for her addictions. She didn’t take a pregnancy test.
The second story: when I was very young, one of my mom’s boyfriends tried to kill me. He shut me in the hot tub, though it was off. When my mom came home she instantly knew something was wrong, and she immediately walked to the hot tub and opened it. Obviously, she was able to save me with no brain damage, which one would expect from all that time without oxygen.
It wasn’t until I was eight that her cravings returned and she became an addict again and my life got a lot more difficult very quickly. But, psychology tells us that the first five years are the most important as these are the foundation years for the rest of our lives. And whatever power was behind all this, got me a wonderful early life. When I think to my early years, all I remember are happy moments.
So, I was wondering if anyone else had crazy stories kind of marking them as unique? I don’t think that I’m the only one.
