A Penny For Your Thoughts

By Nancy Whitaker

ONLY THE NOSE KNOWS

Have you ever stopped and thought just how important your nose is? We may say we hate the way our noses look or we don’t like the size or the shape. Some people have turned up noses, others have huge noses and some have crooked noses.

The size and shape of the nose is really irrelevant, as it is the nose’s job that makes it one of the most important parts of our body. Have you ever stopped and thought what it would be like if you couldn’t smell anything or if we didn’t have a nose?

Of course not every scent is good and not every scent is bad. However, some things smell different to different folks. Smells should indeed be our friends; open your arms and welcome them in.

Some of my favorite memories reflect the different aromas which I smelled as a child. Now, it has been reported that some smells, although they might be stinky ones, can bring back good memories. It is almost like physiological smelling.
