It's nice and quiet and I thought I would write a little before I read and go to bed. I am so happy it's Thursday and I will head home tomorrow. We will be going to the basketball game Saturday afternoon and I am really looking forward to it. I will take some pictures this week. I need to show you how cute those little basketball players and cheerleaders look.
My daughter needs me to do some alterations and I hope to work on covering some journals. I have been seeing some of my blog friends covering them and it looks fun.
Isn't it funny how smells take you back to certain places and times? I have read that the part of your brain that remembers things is right by the smelling area. Is that cool or is it just me? I have the best memories of walking into the home economics room and smelling either cloth or sewing supplies or food that was cooked during the cooking sessions. I loved that smell and sometimes when I catch a whiff of something similiar it really takes me back. Another favorite smell was when my mother would hug me and she had on her apron. It was full of wonderful cooking smells and freshly ironed cotton. I'm missing my mother tonight.
God was so good to give us these senses. I don't ever want to take them for granted. My job everyday is to help people see again and I still don't thank the Lord enough for giving me vision. I want to pray I will keep His blessings on my mind and never take them for granted.
