Ok what is S for ?
S is for sweets ( candies to you US readers)
Ok enough of this list of S words What I really want to share with you today is Senses . No I don't mean Senses as being sensible that would never do, I mean Our five Senses Now I am extremely thankful to God that I have my five senses because If I did not then I would not be able to Smell the fragrances in my spring garden or see the shrubs blooming or speak about the sabotaging slugs invading my hostas then there are touch and hear . I could not hear the shrill calling of the starlings and touch the stinging nettle that has just stung my leg.
I would not see the swimming tadpoles and swarming bugs or the flowers straining to catch the last of the suns rays at seven oclock before they shut their flowers for the night.
I would miss the singing of praise and worship on a Sunday at church or whilst listening to UCB radio sitting at my PC.
Saturday morning when there is time to appreciate it.
Ok I am not perfect My hearing is selective well I hope so the thought of not hearing my childrens voices is unbearable. My eyesight is short and I wear Spectacles, my Optomotrist wants me to have Varifocals sadly the £400 price tag is stopping that. My speach is ok not always patient and not always thought out before I say things but its ok. I am able to touch and feel the silky smooth grass under my feet or the sand between my toes. And thankfully my taste buds can taste the difference between chocolate and lemon juice and Peanuts and Vegetables.
So all in all I am blessed with five working senses and for that I thank God .
Ok I am not bragging I know there are people who are blind but thankful that Braile was invented.
There are people who are deaf ether totaly and rely on sign language or partially and rely on hearing aids. There are people who have no taste how awful that must be and not being able to smell both for pleasure and safety.
And speech problems either none at all or problems with it.
So all in all I am sure that every reader here is thankful for their Senses.
I know that I will read other blogs today and think oh why did I not think of that but I am satisfied with my choice today .
oh and finally
Why am I sad ?
I am sad because there are only
Seven letters of the alphabet left .
What will I do on a Wednesday night?
What will I do instead of spending time reading other peoples ideas ?
Anyway if you are still here pop over to see Jenny in class and see what other S posts there have been
Thank you and see you next TIME for T
