The 5th Anniversary of Hurricane Katrina

Many of you might remember this shot- but for others that are new readers to my blog- this was taken 5 years ago with my sister Rose, in front of my house on Sycamore Street in New Orleans. And I only lived there for about 3 weeks. (More pictures from Hurricane Katrina here). 

There are many images I have in my head from Katrina, like the one above- and I just can't believe that 5 years have gone by since this horrific disaster. (More images here.) 

It saddens me that I have been gone from a city I truly love for that long- but I am also very happy about how far I've come since then and where I am presently.  I don't want to focus too much on the images of the past, but I do want to take today and thank God that I am alive and that I still have all of my family and friends. I am very lucky to have survived those days and I think God was testing me to see how strong I really am.

I also wanted to take a minute and say thank you- you all know who you are. Thank you for being in my life, for loving me and for helping me through all these tough times.
