Yesterday I drove down to Dallas to visit with a friend of mine I’ve known since first grade. She had a baby about a month ago and I wanted to meet him and deliver some gifts. Her parents were also in town and her Dad greeted me with a hug when I got there. I had a great visit and enjoyed holding this precious little person in my arms. As I was driving back toward Oklahoma, I noticed this scent/fragrance on my shirt. It was a good smell and seemed familiar to me but couldn’t put my finger on why until later in the evening. Every so often during the drive, I would get a whiff of it. Once back home, I was relaxing in my lounger and then it hit me. The smell was the same cologne as my uncle used to wear. He passed away many years ago but I just loved that cologne. My Dad wears it occasionally. I called my Mom to tell her and she knew what I meant how something like that could stir up memories. I teased saying I may have to sleep in that shirt. This all sounds odd but I know we all have certain scents that stir up memories or make us feel a certain way. Hugging my friend’s Dad yesterday allowed me to have a case of nostalgia and left me with a warm feeling as I drifted off to bed last night. Until that scent is gone, that shirt won’t be going anywhere near the washer.
