Delicate Object

A post that is beautifully written and which will bring back the emotions many of us have felt when faced with the loss of someone whose mind is no longer with us.. and is physically drifting away.. but it is not sad but hopeful as you will see when you read Pamela Wight’s post

sunrise, sunset, photographySometimes I wonder if souls can shatter, despite their superb strength.

As I drive the seven hours to my mom’s facility where she is suffering from end-stage dementia, my heart beats fast and fills up with pale blue, silky pink emotions. At 6:30 a.m. I’ve been driving for over an hour. The sun begins its rosy ascent over the paved hard highway, and I’m lulled by the soft snores of my daughter in the passenger seat and my two young grandsons in the back seat, covered from chin to toe in soft flannel blankets.

About Smorgasbord - Variety is the Spice of Life.

My name is Sally Cronin and I am doing what I love.. Writing. Books, short stories, Haiku and blog posts. My previous jobs are only relevant in as much as they have gifted me with a wonderful filing cabinet of memories and experiences which are very useful when putting pen to paper. I move between non-fiction health books and posts and fairy stories, romance and humour. I love variety which is why I called my blog Smorgasbord Invitation and you will find a wide range of subjects. You can find the whole story here.

  1. Somehow the spirit knows when the body is failing, and it chooses to begin its departure. During this phase, the body seems to experience less pain, both physical and emotional. I’ve seen this many times. My grandmother’s skin appeared almost translucent a year before she crossed over. She was living with a foot in two worlds. I saw the elders I worked with for many years take on the same appearance. For me, this is a consolation ❤
