There’s always a silver lining.

It is always difficult when someone in our community that we are in contact regularly is going through a tough time. Vasti Quiroz-Vega has just undergone major surgery and all we could do was offer encouragement and send best wishes. Thankfully after a setback, she is well on the road to recovery. I am reblogging her first post because I think it is important for all of us to remember that we may not be in physical contact with each other but we can all still support one another as much as possible. Delighted to hear that Vashti is back with us. Please head over and welcome her back. thanks Sally

The Writer Next Door

Hello, everyone. A very warm welcome to my blog.

Maya Angelou is a poet I admire greatly. I love her quote:

“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”

That quote is one of my favorites because it’s so true. There are people I will always remember fondly. I may not remember every word uttered between us but I do remember the good feelings they brought out in me. Sometimes people underestimate the power of a kind word or gesture. But I know it could change someone’s life. I am so grateful for all the kindness shown to me during this difficult time.

I had a huge setback. I had a couple of days where I felt some improvement in my recovery after my hysterectomy surgery and then things began to go downhill…

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.
