Death is an inevitable stage that we HAVE to come face to face with at some point in our lives, either our own or of someone we love. I call death a ‘stage’ and not a destination because I refuse to believe that everything ends after we die. The spirit world is still a mystery and there have been a lot of speculations regarding it. People of various cultures, races, beliefs etc have their own story to tell.
Kimberley Pearce, 40, from North Carolina, US, believes she had an encounter with the supernatural. Her cocker spaniel Sadie, was only a few days away from her 13th birthday before she passed away. Sadie had been sick for a long time and her illness finally caught up to her. Mrs Pearce had been extremely worried about Sadie’s health and was devastated when she had to put her down.
Her husband got her a new pup to cheer her up but she still missed Sadie. Almost a week after Sadie’s death, Mrs Pearce was recording a video of her playing with the new pup when she caught something odd on camera. She saw a shadow, that resembled Sadie, sort of running towards her. There could be a scientific explanation for this, like maybe heat escaping from the air vent. But Mrs Pearce is convinced it was Sadie letting her know that everything will be alright.
It cannot be said with utmost certainty that the shadow seen on the video was of Sadie, but in a time of grief, even the slightest hope is worth holding on to. While many might be freaked out by an incident like this, Kimberly was happy and found peace “But then I started to smile. I had been begging for her to give me a sign.”
Maybe not all ghost stories are spooky?
