I’m over at Sue Vincent’s blog today, once again sharing an eerie story for her Elusive guest post series.
Do you believe in spirits? Have you ever sensed a ghost in your home?
Many people are skeptical about ghosts until they actually encounter an experience they have no other explanation for. I always believed in spirits. I may have been skeptical when I was younger, but through the years, I have had encounters several times with my dear father who had passed more than twenty years ago.
