Today I’m thankful for my senses
Thanksgiving was never meant to be shut up in a single day.
Robert Caspar Lintner
I’m continuing on with my days of thankfulness until the end of November. I never get tired of saying Thanks and I hope your not tired of reading about what I’m thankful for either. Hopefully you are thankful for a lot of the same things.
Of all the senses, sight must be the most delightful.
Sense of sight – for letting you see the colors of life..
Nature has given us two ears, two eyes, and but one tongue--to the end that we should hear and see more than we speak.
Sense of hearing – for letting you hear the trickle of rain, the voices of your loved ones, and the harmonious chords of music.
If you can learn from hard knocks, you can also learn from soft touches.
Sense of touch – for letting you feel the texture of your clothes, the breeze of the wind, the hands of your loved ones.
Who will tell whether one happy moment of love or the joy of breathing or walking on a bright morning and smelling the fresh air, is not worth all the suffering and effort which life implies.
Sense of smell – for letting you smell scented candles, perfumes, and beautiful flowers in your garden.
When one has tasted it Watermelon he knows what the angels eat.
Sense of taste – for letting you savor the sweetness of fruits, the saltiness of seawater, the sourness of pickles, and the spiciness of chili.
Reason is founded on the evidence of our senses.
Percy Bysshe Shelley
