Memory Provoking Smells

So, this morning I have spent 3 hours making a caramel pie and peach cobbler, doing laundry, cuddling with Buckley, and getting ready for 2 families Thanksgivings. The hubs had to go into work for an hour or two.

I bought 2 pairs of jeans yesterday which is a miracle in and of itself. So, I washed them this morning so that I can wear them today. I got in the dryer to pull out my jeans and the scent that poured out of the dryer was that of my grandfather. For those who don't know, I had a very hard time when my grandfather died. I was 21 and it was the first significant personal loss that had to deal with all the emotions that come with loss. I had lost my other grandfather when I was much younger and while I had to deal with it emotionally it seemed easier. It was really rough for me. But, this morning his smell was comforting and I knew that he is here with me. I am thankful for everyone in my life... those here on this planet and those waiting to see me again.

Thanks for being here today Opa. I love you!
