Old Friends and Karaoke

It's Monday once again, my friends. And as always that means it's time to reflect on the things that made us happy over the past week. And of course now is also the perfect time to set the tone for a great week to come! 

If you missed my take on LML, you can find it here. If you missed the explanation of LML Monday, you can catch up here

Among all of the other holiday festivities going on this past week, I also had the immense joy of attending a Karaoke Party hosted by my dear friend Miss Riki. Although we keep in touch regularly online, I don't get to see her in person nearly as often as I'd like, so this weekend was quite a treat.

And that treat was doubled, because at the party I also go to see another great lady (that I've known since high school, but also don't see nearly as often as I'd like.) It was lovely to hang out by the pool and do some catching up. It's always a shame when so much time passes between visits with old friends, but it's wonderful to be able to pick right back up like no time has passed. That's what real friendship is all about.

Now, fortunately Miss Riki was kind enough as to not force all of her guests to sing at this Karaoke Party. (And I'm pretty sure that was a wise choice on her part, considering what everyone would have had to sit through had I picked up the mic.) But she was also kind enough to allow anyone who did want to sing, and my kids were thrilled to take part.

We were treated to such hits as "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star" and "Old MacDonald Had a Farm." It was wonderful.

Ok. I shared mine - now it's your turn! Please feel free to leave me a comment and share some of your recent LML moments. Focus on the happy thoughts, and let's all have a great week!

Your post doesn't specifically have to use the "LML" label (although you're welcome to use it if you'd like, and the graphic that goes along with it.) If you have any kind of happy, positive Monday message that you'd like to share you're welcome to join. The more happy vibes, the better the Monday!


  1. Sounds like fun! I'm a sucker for karaoke, especially if Bohemian Rhapsody is on the list... ;)

    I added this week's GBT to your link list.

    1. I love Behemian Rhapsody! My friends and I all did many a performance of that song, Wayne's World style, in high school. :)

      Thanks for linking up. I also shared the link to your post on my Facebook page. (I think I forgot to do that last week. Sorry.) But from now on I'll always try to do that for anyone who links up with LML Monday.
