 I’m still enjoying time with good friends in NY. Aside from an occasional bad pain day, I’ve been having a blast!

I’m celebrating that and the fact that I scratched another to-do off my bucket list. Although I can’t sing, I decided to participate in a karaoke event that my ride or die girl, Vivian held last week. She’s an amazing K-jay, and she knew I wanted to perform a song forever. Considering how lucky I am to have my voice back after the bleed, I felt this needed to be done. 🙂 What better way to celebrate than actually using it? Vivi’s Karaoke Krew was the absolute best and calmed my fears. They even sang along with me! I sang my late mother’s favorite ’80s song: Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This), by the Eurythmics.

The file was too large to download, but if you want to hear some of it, here’s the link:

Hopefully, your ears won’t bleed! 😀

Best of all, I’m STILL ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE GRASS!! Yeah, Baby!!

What have you celebrated this week?




About My Miracle Life

I'm a writer, blogger, avid reader, book reviewer, sub-arachnoid hemorrhage and stroke survivor, moving forward in my recovery and trying to advocate for stroke and brain hemorrhage awareness and prevention. I'm also slowly working towards independence, driving, my first novel, a memoir and a series of short stories. I've been lucky to have a very small network of close friends to guide me; I've been even luckier to have found an online 'family' of sorts to help me through the rough times.

  2. Good for you for doing the karaoke! That must have been so much fun. I know that song well. I’ve always liked 80s songs the best. Off to check out the link. Have a wonderful weekend!
