I love the smell of _______ because it reminds me of ___________.
I love the smell of *rubbing alcohol* because it reminds me of *when my babies were born*.
I really do love that smell. You know when you have your baby and they give you those little wipes to put on their umbilical cord until it dries up? Well, I LOVE those little wipes. I could smell them all day long. It makes me remember when Samantha was so little... just 5 pounds... laying in the NICU... healthy but small. And the boys... big little babies... but yet so seemingly tiny... so needy... my angels.
Man, I would love to have that time back again! It is gone so quickly.
But that smell, that alcohol, ALWAYS makes me remember.
