Senses

Standard

Of all of the five senses? Smell is the one that evokes a burst of vivid images for me. I have been known to stop on a dime at the slightest hint of one of these triggers. Yes, I look for the unexpected in every day ordinary.

Favorite smells are the incense of my life’s tapestry. They often appear as if divinely ordered, anxiously waiting to see if I am aware. A gentle breeze of fresh air or aromas that seem to say “I am here” or “Remember Me?” These moments are gifts, a surprise to my senses. I hope I am always sensitive to their nudging.

The smell of the ocean…. reminds me of my three favorite things. Faith, Hope & Love and mostly…GRACE that is new every morning

I hope you take time to notice the things that make you smile….maybe it is the sense of sight, hearing or touch, taste…. maybe, just maybe? you are blessed to enjoy them all…
