V is for...

Vanilla

I don't know if I would say that I am blessed by vanilla. But I do think that I am blessed by my scents of smell and taste. I know several people who tell me that they can't smell. I thought that if you couldn't smell then you couldn't taste anything either. Maybe that's just a myth but I thought the two go hand in hand.

Well, I "googled" it and found out that "70 to 75% of what we perceive as taste actually comes from our sense of smell. Taste buds allow us to perceive only bitter, salty, sweet, and sour flavors. It's the odor molecules from food that give us most of our taste sensation."

Interesting.

What are some of your favorite smells? Vanilla is my first answer always.

So maybe I am just thankful for Various senses.
