We shared so many memorable moments together, just hanging in the kitchen, chatting away into the night, while listening to music and playing, "Name That Artist?" Of course, he would always win! LOL!! And always talking about future endeavors.
I "Remember The Time..." when Paris and I went snail hunting in the backyard at night and MJ straight cold busted us coming home from rehearsals. I just knew I was going to get in trouble. He laughed, and thought it was cute. And of course, the classic memory when the children and the dog Kenya ran ramped through the house while Kenya tracted dirty white chalked paws (from the garage) all through the house. We had so much fun! This is one fun time MJ wasn't aware of. Thank goodness we cleaned up quickly!! Beautiful memories!
So today, I reflect on the man who gave love to the world through his music, a man who provoked thought and conscious awareness with his lyrics and most of all a man who so generously showed me kindness and appreciation with great devotion and unconditional love to his children.
To me he was a great man of wisdom and strength, a pillar of knowledge, a philanthropist. He was a world giver, he CARED! He was child like at heart, a practical jokester, a comedian, a health food advocate, a healthy eater, a lover of "good" food, a lover of fine art, a lover of animals and the world's most celebrated entertainer.
I will forever be blessed with the love of MJ's light!
Gone too Damn Soon!!!
