Do you ever have it when a familiar smell brings you right back to a time in your childhood….
It happened again tonight, I was out biking and the smell came over me.
I remember the smell as I was burrowing into my bed. The sheets were crisp and fresh. The feeling and the smell told me my Mom had been busy washing and hanging sheets out to dry while I was busy being a kid….
And so as I biked today I thought to myself, the outdoors smells just like my sheets…..
Or is it that my sheets smelled just like the outdoors….
It is an amazing smell and I am thankful my Mom knew how to bring the fresh outdoors into my sheets.
Take some deep breaths during the freshness of Fall and journey back in your memory. If your Mom also hung out sheets, remember all that goes with the crisp smell of the outdoors. If she didn’t hang those sheets up to dry, just enjoy the smell for today!
