Kind, caring & bubbly! Fiesta Friday
Kind, caring and bubbly = Selma!
This is actually a commemorative post for Selma, who had Selma’s Table blog, who sadly passed away from cancer last weekend.
I would not have got to meet Selma had it not been for Angie who hosts Fiesta Friday, so I thank Angie first of all for having this platform in which many people get to share friendship even if it be via text form. However as many of you know it can extend so much further than this.
Selma managed to enthuse her warm presence throughout not only her fantastic food blog (you can still go and see her wonderful creations and get to know her history if you didn’t have the privilege before), but also through many other blogs, through her comments and fun, caring interactions.
I don’t know how long ago it was that I met her in the blogging world and I am sure there are many others who knew her much better, but she was always one of those people ‘always’ there, in the background, who would make you smile with her words.
So I was very excited when she arranged for a group of us (named above), to meet at the Royale Plaza for tea and a wonderful event it was too. Selma though in discomfort was always smiling genuinely, so happy to see others meet and make friendships. She was a genuinely warm and lovely person. I had no idea at the time that she was suffering from cancer, I take my hat off to her for firstly her bravery and secondly her generous nature, still in the face of adversity making sure others got to have a good time and meet each other.
So there will I am sure be many other posts dedicated to Selma and tears still to be shed, but to me, she still feels like she is here, her presence is felt and every Friday even moreso she will pop in to my mind with the Fiesta Party Goers.
Thank you Selma, you touched many people’s lives in a wonderful way ❤
This dedication is part of Fiesta Friday #76 to all the other Selma sisters and people who knew her xx
