Linda took me to Hawaii for a much needed get away- In my Journal, “I learned a great deal on my trip to Hawaii. I learned there was a part of me crying to be “Free”. I felt that freedom in Hawaii. I felt safe finally, and it felt wonderful to me. I saw things that mean so much to me, such as: Lighthouses, the sunrise, the sunset, flowers, shells, the seashores, waterfalls and rainbows, and the ocean made my “soul” come alive. I was so very “Happy”! One of her favorite places in the world to visit was Hawaii, her love for the island brought her peace, joy, and serenity. This was her paradise her, (getaway.)
