Experience description:  

Was laying on the couch listening to Christmas music feeling sad because my daughter left with her father for Christmas Eve celebration at her dads families house.  I was missing my mom A LOT like always and the music was not helping me even though I tried to listen to it because it would get me more in the spirit of the season.  Well I just ended up crying.  Begging my mom to give me a Christmas gift and visit me.  I missed her so bad that would make me feel better.    

My dog who was laying on loveseat near me lifted her head and stared to the left of me and wouldn't move.  I immediately looked over and there was a man standing there next to me.  I immediately sat up a little and said what are you doing?  He smiled at me and although no words came from his mouth I could hear him still.  He reached his hand out to me and said do you want to see your mother?  take my hand.  I said not until you tell me who you are.  He said just trust me and I will let you see your mom.  (Now this man I would guesstimate to be about 5'11" in white pants and a long white shirt, medium brown color hair and about inch of two below shoulders. He was extremely handsome and I would say olive color skin.) 

Anyways, reluctantly I took his hand, I was looking at his hand as I touched it.  It was definitely a man hand, strong yet gentle and then it started to change to a hand I knew very well.  One that as a child would never be mistaken.  I immediately looked up as this man slowly morphed into my mother.  Again she didn't speak but smiled at me with the smile my mom always had to give that showed she loved me.  The words I heard from her were heard but she never moved her mouth and she told me she still loves me like she had before she left and she always would. Then she slowly disappeared.  I just sat and sobbed after she left.  But it was nice.  Many said I was dreaming but I know I wasn't.  Call me crazy but I know it was true. It was real don't care if anyone thinks I am crazy.
