This was the first success I had in a long time.

I recently turned thirty nine years old this year. I had resolved to put difficult times in the past because of a spiritual awakening I had. I was not even totally cognizant of my emotional disturbance until I was in high school. As a child I was bullied badly at school and even in my neighborhood I lived in with my family in Crown Heights section of Brooklyn. Brooklyn is a special place for me and holds a special significance for me because it’s the place I was born and lived until I was about thirteen years old. I think of Brooklyn’s famous Junior’s restaurant and how it’s famous for making cheesecake. Junior’s has been making cheesecake for a while they can be ordered on QVC on a cable TV or the home shopping network. I just love Junior’s strawberry cheesecake. I always get a slice of strawberry cheesecake when I am in town. I visited my grandmother in Crown Heights yesterday.
