Do you remember the smell of your favorite meal cooking on the stove when you were young? How about
the aroma of fresh cut grass in the spring? Or maybe you can't get rid of the memories of your great aunt Martha because she worse gallons of the stinkiest, cheap cologne ever!?!!
Aromas are some of the strongest memory joggers we have. What memory do you connect with an aroma? For me one would be the smell of a Christmas tree or even the aroma of a fresh cut tree or limbs in the woods. It brings a warm feeling of home to me. Probably the most wonderful and heart warming one though is the smell of grandma's house. It was tiny and build of cinder blocks. Under the tall trees by the lake it could be a bit damp but never a musty odor. The room where the fishing poles wicker creel were kept takes me right back to days spent with just grandma and me...only ME...going fishing, cooking supper together, and she always did the dishes - her choice.
I'm getting a little teary just thinking about
how I loved those times as a child...all from the one aromas that is still in my head.
you? What aromas bring back wonderful memories?

If you ask what is the single most important key to longevity, I would have to say it is avoiding worry, stress and tension. And if you didn't ask me, I'd still have to say it.
