It had been gloomy days ever since I heard an unexpected news about one of my blogger friends’ passing, Selma’s table. I had never thought that I would shed a tear for someone I have never met in person, but I was quite wrong. For the past days, whenever I thought I would never receive any kind comment from Selma ever again, I had tears in my eyes. So I am writing this post as a tribute to the lovely Selma from Selma’s table to say a proper goodbye.
Selma was one of the kindest people I know. We only ‘talk’ electronically, but she made me feel as if we had been friends for years. Her sincerity came through in every post, every comment and every conversation we had over the years. If we lived in the same town, I was sure that she would be my confidante.
At Selma’s table, she quoted on the header, “Life doesn’t have to be perfect to be wonderful – stories and recipes from a wonderful life.” I never knew she was battling cancer because she only showed all of us her happiness. Her positive attitude in life was quite contagious because I was always feeling upbeat after reading her posts. Also, Selma had always been a big supporter of a new blogger, myself included; she gave a shout-out for a newbie all the time and in my experience, that gesture meant a lot to a new blogger. All those reasons plus the fact that she was always so sweet make me really miss her.
I guess it’s true when people say that friendship is all around, and whatever we send out to the universe does boomerang back to us in the same manner. I am lucky to get to know Selma and develop an unusual friendship with her. I am sure Selma knows by now that all the loves that she gave, she gets them back 1000 times more from her friends all over the world. I am sure Selma knows that she is missed dearly from all of us, and I am sure that she is now spreading happiness wherever she is. May you rest in peace, my wonderful friend. It’s such an honoured to be your friend; there will always be a place in my heart reserving for your memory. xoxo
P.S. Today, I don’t have any recipe for you because herb salt is one of those condiments that doesn’t need any recipe. Depends on YOUR farmers market, any available fresh herbs will do. Just pulse the herb (s) of your choice in a food processor until coarsely chopped, add kosher salt, then pulse further until well-combined. Use it on salad, seafood, soup, stew etc. After this, I encourage you to look into Selma’s recipes and if you have a second, read her posts. so you can get a glimpse of who she was.
