I’ve never spoke of this to anyone out of fear of being teased or called a liar. But a few years ago while visiting family over seas, I was walking along a path not far from my late moms childhood home. At the end of the path is a small lake my mom and her siblings use to swim and fish in.
As I got close to the water, I noticed a young girl sitting on a blanket reading a book and just relaxing in the sun. When she saw me, she smiled and waved and asked how I was doing. She looked to be about 13 or 14 years old and was dressed in a pale blue dress. Her bright red hair was brushed backed into a pony-tail and I didn’t see any shoes.
I went over to her and we talked a bit. She seemed pleasant and was very sweet. I must of seemed rude to her because I kept staring at her, she seemed familiar. Like I should know her. But I just couldn’t put my finger on why I felt like I should know her. But after speaking briefly with her, I told her I had to go and maybe I would see her later.
Later that night,my aunt pulled out the family photo album and no sooner had she opened it, there was the picture of the girl I had seen by the lake! And it was my own mother! I had actually spoken to my mom and hadn’t realized it!
My question is, how does that even happen? The picture was taken in 1942. Did I time travel? and if I did, why?
