I’m not a crier.
And I’ll be honest, I don’t usually cry about EJami. I feel huge swells of emotion in my chest, either a crazy endorphin rush in the loving and sexy times or a tightening stress during the less loving and sexy times. But tears – not really.
Well, I was just in Atlanta this past weekend at the DCE fundraiser, where James Scott (EJ DiMera) attended. He was in a pretty great mood, and the question he probably asked EJami fans more than anything else was, “are you enjoying the story line?” Naturally, these fans (old timers and newbies alike) were more than happy to share their joy about it.
These events always have a way to motivating the base, and this one was no exception. Friends, old and new, talked to me about how they were really going to make an effort to show TPTB just how much they love what they’re seeing and I agreed. While it’s been good to just sit back, relax, and enjoy this (because we certainly earned it), I refuse to take it for granted.
Last night I was cruising around YouTube checking out the latest EJami montages and I stumbled across a few that struck me so deeply. And as I watched one, by one of my favorite vidders LunaStar1406, and I was reminded of EJ’s undying love for Sami and the fulfillment he now feels, I….. cried. (Okay, maybe just a tear or two, but seriously, there was moisture in my eyes).
He We finally got what we’ve wanted for so long.
It was a cathartic moment, and I realized that the song she used, “Never Stop,” and the lyrics like “I will never stop choosing you” and “You still get my heart racing,” sort of took on new meaning. I could relate.
So in the end, life happens and you can’t always make time to share your love with TPTB, but don’t let it slip away. Don’t take it for granted. Love it, enjoy it, post about it, celebrate it, and cry about it every now and again.
