It's been a minute since my last entry here. To be honest, I've been going through some personal things that have torn me away from the world of Michael Jackson for a while. During my busy seasons, from high school finals, to specialization exams, to changes in life - I tend to take a break from Michael. Not to say that his music is a distraction at all but, I'd be lying if I said that I can totally focus on important things with MJ music in the background. Haha!
I just got back from overseas and realized that Christmas is just a few days away. There's nothing like frigid New York weather and holiday shop windows to remind you of it. :-) This is usually my favorite time of year but, after the recent loss of my last surviving grandparent, this holiday season been a difficult season for my family. In spite of everything, I decided to throw on the Jackson 5 Christmas album last night. And guys... for the first time this winter, I felt some holiday joy.
So much of Christmas for me is about gratitude. Thankful for family, for friends, for health, for God's love. And a big part of gratitude for me, is also being thankful for the fan community. Throughout my time in the MJFAM (almost 2 decades now!) I've found comfort in knowing that I have friends of all ages, backgrounds, and in places all over the world. And over the past year I've had the chance to meet even more people through mjfangirl.
