A To Z Of Gratitude: S

S is for Senses

"Nothing exists in the intellect that has not first gone through the senses."
- Plutarch -



Sight, hearing, touch, taste and smell. Five senses that enable us to better understand our surroundings. And experience life more fully. How can I not be grateful for that?

Enjoy the day!

  1. I hear you, Martha! Get it?! lol Hey, it's kinda early....
    Actually I do appreciate my senses....a lot. In the late 70's I lost my sense of smell and therefore my sense of taste was greatly affected. It took lots of doctors, acupuncturists, tests etc to get to the bottom of it. I found out that 'dairy' was the culprit in the mid 80's.
    So yes, let's celebrate our senses!!
    Have a great day. It's windy and wild here!!

    1. It was windy and wild here, too, yesterday. Very strong winds! Thank goodness there wasn't any damage. We don't need that to happen while our home is on the market!

  2. I think with senses we take them for granted until we start to lose them and then we appreciate them more. This past summer, I think it was allergies caused blockage in my sinuses, I had diminished hearing for a bit in my left ear (it eventually cleared) but during that time I sure appreciated the fact of when I could hear better and appreciate the fact now that things are back to normal.

    Yep, indeed something to be grateful for with our senses!

    1. You bet. We do take our senses for granted and we shouldn't. They are priceless!

  3. Those are good ones to be thankful, for. But where is the circle with the wand, for hocus pocus sense, or even a circle with a spider, for the spidey sense?

  4. Yes, it is really fine when all five of these senses are working.

  6. Okay, here I get a little greedy and ungrateful. I would like the keen hearing of some animals. When I look out the window at the jack rabbit he/she can obviously hear me when I'm in the house..

    1. Well, I must admit... Having that kind of hearing would be pretty incredible!

  7. Definitely something I don't think much about, but without a doubt, something I'd be miserable without.
