You so speak the truth.

After my mother died, I would go to my dad's and do his laundry. I loved putting the clothes away in the closet where my mom's things still hung. I'd open the door and inhale deeply. Then one day it wasn't there anymore. I couldn't bring myself to open her closet again.

Smell is such a powerful memory trigger. Even as I write this I can remember vividly how Mom smelled. Great writing and a lovely tribute to the important people in your life.

Smells do take us back...to some good places and some not so good places. Thanks for sharing this thought-provoking devotional.
