After reading Trailady's blog again I feel challenged to dig a little deeper, take some time to think about things and savor life. She posted about the things that her 5 senses enjoy. So here is my list
Taste: Chocolate of course. Right now, chocolate and pineapple. Mmmm... Popcorn. Spaghetti.
Sound: My kids giggles. Hearing my husband's key in the door. Silence. The melody of an old favorite song. The sigh of a happy baby.
Smell: fresh coffee. Baby soap. Fresh baked bread or cookies. The smell of ANYTHING my mom is cooking. The ocean. Minty breath.
Touch: Fresh towels out of the dryer. A new pair of socks. Dan playing with my hair. My kids hands patting my face to wake me up in the morning. (most of the time) A warm fire on a cold night. Cuddling with my hubby. Holding a sleeping baby. A hot bath - alone. Clean sheets on the bed.
Sight: Daffodils. Old couple holding hands. My kids hugging each other (it doesn't usually last that long before it turns into a choke hold). Dan's face. A new puppy playing. My dad sitting in his chair in his old raggedy "prayer" sweater reading the Bible. (There is something so comforting about that) My mom driving away with my kids. And also seeing them come back is good too.
Ok, so now for a few things that irritate my senses:
Taste: Bananas. Tuna. Spearmint. Fake apple flavoring.
Sound: Kids sassing their parents. People saying "Jesus Christ" when they aren't actually talking about Him.
Touch: People's feet on me. Untucked bed sheets. Luke warm water.
Smell: Bananas - yes they are THAT bad. Cigarette smoke. Unbrushed teeth
Sight: Birds of paradise. Men in tight pants. Little boys with long shaggy hair.
Think about the things you love in life big and small and please share!
