I knew Sally Paradysz for a brief time, yet I will miss the sweet wedge that she was on, A SliceOf Orange.
I admired her thankful nature; always attune to the many things to be grateful for, and ever aware that brambles and branches are not obstacles, but opportunities for creating new pathways and making marvelous discoveries.
Therefore, I thought it fitting, at this Thanksgiving season, to devote my post to Sally.
Gentle, kind and sincere, her writings and comments hinted at something more and offered a glimpse toward something greater. I have to believe that it was her faith in God that inspired her words and her actions.
So, giving thanks is how I will always remember Sally. And I will ever see her and think of her like the image I selected for this post; her words spreading kindness and her open heart and hand sprinkling light and hope on all she knew and touched.
Sally Paradysz, may you rejoice in Paradise.
See you next time on December 22nd.
Manager, Educator, and former High School Social Studies teacher, Veronica credits her love of history to the potpourri of cultures that make up her own life and to her upbringing in diverse Brooklyn, New York. Her genres of choice are Historical Fiction where she always makes new discoveries and Children’s Picture Books because there are so many wonderful worlds yet to be imagined and visited. She currently resides in Macungie, PA.
Thank you so much for this post, Veronica. You captured Sal exactly–she was kind, gentle, and sincere. I hope you have a chance to read her book or some of her short stories because her nature comes through in her writing.
