What’s that Smell?


She sat across from me eating a wonderfully messy sandwich. The smell was fabulous and it caused my stomach to grumble loudly. She told me the name but all I heard was chicken and bacon as my mouth moistened. The aroma wafted through the air and I could practically taste it. Finally, after what seemed like hours, she finished her meal and the smell lessened until it was gone.

My lunch was an egg salad wrap. It wasn’t bad but paled in comparison to the scrumptious, hearty entrĂ©e that delighted my senses earlier.

As I thought of the sandwich I also reflected upon our lives. Each life gives off an aroma. Some are pleasant, others not so much. One draws people while the next repels. Wisdom tells us to live our lives in such a way that they are pleasing to the senses causing those nearby to breathe deeply of their essence.
