Alea of Premeditated Leftovers and I want to welcome you to our weekend blog hop, The Gallery of Favorites, a place to share favorite posts on any subject from your own blogs. Thank you to everyone who visited and linked up to The Gallery last week. This week we are featuringSmall Talk…it’s Big by Diane Balch of Simple Living with Diane Balch.
Diane shares the deeply personal story of her sister Maria, who suffers from a rare chromosome disorder called Seckel Syndrome. Maria is unable to speak and her ability to communicate in other ways is limited. Diane’s wish for the ability to “have just one small chat” with her sister has led her to deeply appreciate “the simple connection that is so easily made by a little small talk”. Diane’s touching post is a reminder of how precious our ability to speak to one another is and how very important it is not to be so busy rushing through our lives that we forget to share ‘the time of day’ with one another. If you have not read Diane’s beautifully written post, I encourage you to do so just as soon as you can. I’m sure you will also enjoy many of Diane’s other Simple Living in Practice posts, as well as her recipes and Foodie Friday Linky.
Although Alea and I both spend a lot of our time writing about food, we also have many other interests and we know that our readers do as well. The Gallery of Favorites is a place for all bloggers to share any of their ideas, interests and passions.
