Today I am thankful for our remarkable five senses. I often think about the beauty my senses allow me to experience, but only recently have I thought to be grateful about how they help protect from danger. What an incredible gift!
Site: the faces of my children, mountain stream , bubbles, tears, smiles, red ripe strawberries, a good book, and a worm in a cherry, an angry face
Sound: Jeff’s Harley, kind words, bells, rock n’ roll, waterfalls, ocean waves, children giggling, birds singing, thunderstorms, “I love you,” and ambulance sirens
Taste: chocolate cake and ice cream, lemons, red ripe strawberries, brie, gumbo, salsa verde, truffles, mussels, mashed potatoes, juicy steak, and expired milk
Smell: Texas bluebonnets, chocolate chip cookies, grilled shrimp, freshly mown grass, new car, oranges, lavender, fresh ground coffee, and chlorine, natural gas
Touch: bubble bath, soft baby feet, gentle caress, walking barefoot in the sand, gentle breeze, cold snow, snuggly quilt, and hot burners
Texture: crunchy corn chips, smooth guacamole, velvety mouse, and biting into a crisp chilled apple
I would love to hear what you are thankful for today!
