Of Fun and Friendship (Thursday Poets' Rally Week 27)

bound by friendship
ties that are deep
two decades of sisterhood
an unbreakable loop
"raise the roof!"
that was the mood
a night of 80's fun
and disco jam...
of strobe lights
and tights...
of red stilettos
and loud echoes...
never ending banters
in a room full of prancers...
one night of break
for sanity's sake!

It was Kadayawan Festival in Davao City last week. Fat Bobby's hosted another 80's party called Retro Friday (August 20) and even though I had an on-and-off fever, I couldn't pass up the once-in-a-blue-moon bonding time with my equally busy BFFs and TFFs. And so, FUN FUN FUN we had that Friday night! Disco balls, laser lights and wet (as in sweat) look... it was soooooooooo 80's once again!!!

A BIG thanks to Jingle and the other poets who voted for me. I really appreciate this beautiful Celebrate Poet of July Award. Thank you so much!

hi thom, those big smiles couldn't hide how much fun we had that friday evening. then sunday night came and we had to rush my son to the hospital for acute appendicitis. he underwent appendectomy the next day. :( it was actually a long roller coaster emotional ride for me last weekend.

I had already been by your site a few times and have been very touched by your story, and your courage, and devotion to your children. I will keep in closer touch. Keep smiling, Bing - smiles look good on you!

Being happy doesn't mean everything's perfect. It means you decide to see beyond the imperfections.

"Count your blessings. Once you realize how valuable you are and how much you have going for you, the smiles will return, the sun will break out, the music will play, and you will finally be able to move forward to the life that God intended for you with grace, strength, courage and confidence." ~ Og Mandino

If I could wish for my life to be perfect, it would be tempting, but I would have to decline, for life would no longer teach me anything.
