Thanksgiving in Chesapeake, VA - Finding Peace

It is Monday Night in Chesapeake, VA - I have had a beautiful day filled with work, gym and amazing food (Believe me when I say - they will not let me go hungry). The company is amazing and I am so grateful for the opportunity that I do have to be in such a wonderful location with such wonderful people. I forget what it is like to be outside of New York City and all the hustle and bustle that goes along with that quick paced life. Living in New York City can be exhausting and overwhelming yet it is also a place that forces one to grow as well as a place in which you can achieve your dreams and your passions in life - which believe me when I say I do have plenty. Escaping away from the city of fast paced madness is very nurturing and important - it is what keeps those of us living in New York City able to continue amongst that craziness we call home.

I arrived with BLUE on Sunday and believe me when I tell you that my body has just loved the escape, I have never been more grateful for a slower way of life - Thanks God for the suburbs.

Thanksgiving is upon us and there is a peace I am able to feel while I am here in VA during my visit - a peace that is overwhelmingly filled with comfort. I am surrounded by love here - love - amongst a place of nurture. There is a lot of maturity in this family - a maturity for which I am grateful to learn and be a part of...I choose to keep their struggle and joys sacred, because it is sacred and it is their own. I love them for inviting me here for Thanksgiving.

May your Thanksgiving be filled with love and wonderful memories and may you find peace in all that you do!



ps: Happy Birthday BROTHER!
