NO. 204 IS GOING HOME
A true story of survival, love, motherhood and being human.
It’s time. Time to let this story travel the world. I started to write this book in January 2005, and I guess I needed this time to let it all mature before I was ready to let it go, ready to give it wings of its own. Now is the right time. I know that.
This is not a Tsunami book – it’s a book about being a human.
A book about losing yourself and finding yourself again.
You, but so very different.
It’s about feeling as a failure as a parent when your children needed you the most and to deal with that feeling of guilt.
It’s a love story. About love for life. For family. For ourselves.
It’s a story about forgiveness. It took some time for me to forgive myself.
To forgive the panic attacks that hit me.
To forgive the ocean.
Most of all it’s a story about being human.
......with love as our ground and foundation,
it will be okay in the end.
