Do you remember a few things that you have missed since childhood?
A particular candy?
Invisible friend maybe?
Yes, well I have a few things that I find myself as well.
Time and again they will come to mind.
And after being lost in a few moments of reminiscing,
With a heavy sigh I will dismiss the thoughts of yesteryear
keenly aware that…
“All things come to pass.”
However, I try to never lose hope that somewhere, somehow, I will have an opportunity to enjoy them once again.
For me, three things come to mind:
1. My Mother’s coffee cake with the fluted edges and mocha butter icing.
2. The Tosca cologne which my Grandmother always gave me for my birthday.
I wore it on my wedding day.
3. The original scent of Jergens hand cream.
It was the only hand cream that I remember as a child
In fact, when I travelled to German with my Mother, it was give to me as a gift.
Imagine my pleasant surprise that while shopping yesterday I finally came across a bottle of Jergens original scent hand cream.
Sure,the packaging was different, but I didn’t care.
Several hours later as I dabbed some in the palm of my hand, I recognized the sweet almondy fragrance.
And all at once….
I was six years old again.
I love it when that happens….
