Glad today brings you better times and happier days to come.

Hey Ann -
We were cleaning up from that NOT REMEMBERED HURRICANE RITA!!!

Not many people remember but less than a month after Hurricane Katrina hit Southeast Louisiana - Hurricane RITA which was a CLASS 4 Hurricane (Katrina hit as a 3) hit Southwest Louisiana ~

Our area was devasted just as bad as New Orleans but we didn't receive the press coverage. ~

The people in our area did evacuate but we probably wouldn't have if our area had been hit first ~ but watching what everyone went thru - in SouthEast Louisiana AND in Mississippi - we did leave when asked - even those of us that had to stay in shelters, leave on buses, etc. I came home the next day to utter destruction - it was heartbreaking to see your hometown devasted ~ but encouraging to watch everyone pull together to make it thru it.

YES - recovery from a Hurricane is tough - but nothing compared to the Hurricane that addiction/alcoholism does to our lives!

Thanks for all the support, love and understanding! i would never make it without y'all!

PINK HUGS!

You all survived multiple hurricanes including your namesake. I have goosebumps right now, thinking about it all. You're both like hurricane lamps, lighting the way

Hey Chino -

I have 5 daughters - Ashley, Katrina, Brianne, Beth & Desiree!

Ashley is the oldest that shared her story

and yes I have a daughter named KATRINA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My girls & I have always joked that this stuff is too funny, weird, eerie and SCARY to make up -We couldn't even be a LIFETIME TRUE STORY we would have to be one of those HBO documentaries !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ohhhhhh, I'm so happy for you that you were able to witness this great recovery!

Thanks for sharing this success story with us.

Although I came here late, I was there in the audience too. I was sitting to the left of Ann. I'm the one with the grey hair!! Grey from stressing and worrying when I was younger!

Hugs to you
