Leeann A's Experience

Experience description:   

I was a mother of two boys aged 4 (Paul) and 3.

 the 4 year old was going into hospital for grommets, I was worried about this  My husband (David) moved us all into the back blocks of the country, where he was a teacher.

I had got to a point in my marriage where I stayed up till 4 am cleaning so as not to go to bed with the husband.

David invited two work mates from out of town to share a beach trip with us, we all arrived at a small quite beach, it felt like there was nobody else there ( I was feeling so isolated at the time) I don't remember getting the boys into their swim shorts or me into my swimming togs.

David and the other people were sitting on the blanket eating lunch and chatting, the boys were playing in the sand, I was standing at the waters edge watching the boys playing, my mind said walk backwards into the water, so I did, I walked and walked, I could still see the kids on the beach, I looked above me and there was water my height plus above me, I thought if this is drowning yes please I like it, I was feeling so clam just standing there, I asked in my mind, is this it? what happens now,?... then a very gentle male voice said it's not your time,

you have things many things to do......when this voice stopped I heard my son Paul calling his daddy, daddy daddy I can't see mummy any more. and with that I stared walking back to shore, it took a blink of time to get back on shore to stand beside my son, I looked down and I was bone dry not one drop of water on me at all.....
