“Sense”ational Gratitude

Today I am thankful for our remarkable five senses. I often think about the beauty my senses allow me to experience, but only recently have I thought to be grateful about how they help protect from danger. What an incredible gift!

Sound: Jeff’s Harley, kind words, bells, rock n’ roll, waterfalls, ocean waves, children giggling, birds singing, thunderstorms, “I love you,” and ambulance sirensocean joy
