Hi :) I enjoyed catching up with your blog today. I pray that your new normal will be better than you could have ever imagined. You and your family deserve it.

Consider yourself tagged :) 8 things we may or may not know about you.


Hi Lindsay, I thought of you and your family today with all of the coverage that is going on. Your family has done an absolutely amazing job at rebuilding your lives, and you DESERVE to make a decision that is right for you! Don't let "the look" get to you, you've done your part.


Lyndsay, Thought of you several times today and kept checking the blog to see if you had posted about Katrina. I wasn't surprised when I saw this post, but I would have also understood if you avoided it as well. I can't imagine how hard this all must be on your family, and I pray that you won't ever have to feel that way again.


You deserve happiness and normalcy, whatever those things might be... and you deserve to look towards your bright future, not behind at what happened.


From far far away my family and I held you close to our hearts yesterday - as we have done many times in the past two years. Since first knowing of your story through the nest, i have become so thankful of your willingness to share your sadness, achning, happiness and hope with all of us on your blog. I'm sure parts of your life will always be seen through the Katrina filter, but i hope as you move on to Texas you will find a new, comfortable, normal.
So, happiness, love, strength and a BIG thank you from afar!


I'm joining the others who have said they thought of you all day yesterday. Many good thoughts, friend.


Lyndsay, my heart goes out to you and your family... and your community. I am so very proud of you. You are an inspiration to many - that you can be so strong and live your lives with such joy is inspiring. I read your post last night and couldn't find the words to leave you a comment. I will admit, until I started reading your blog, Katrina was a devastation that happened far far away from me. When Katrina happened, my heart broke for the people affected, but it didn't affect my life directly. You have made it a very real thing for me by bringing me, as a reader of your blog, into your life and giving me that very personal insight into the nightmare that it was for you and your community. I want to thank you for sharing your heart with us over these last two years. You have given my prayers direction. You have made Katrina very real to a California girl who otherwise just goes on day to day, not thinking too much beyond her little world.

I am so happy for you and your family - the fresh start will be good for you. I was so thankful when your house sold as easily as it did. It is definitely time for you to move on. Best wishes always.


I too avoided the television all day on 8/29. But the great news is that we closed on our new home the day after! God is good Lyndsay :D
