There is a memory from childhood that evokes a sentimental journey, often at times when I least expect it. This memory is not a single occasion or even a particular scene or childhood dream, rather it is a smell.
My dad worked in a cabinet shop. When he returned home around dinner time every evening, my sister and I would rush out to be the first to hug daddy. It was then that we would be greeted with wide open arms and the smell of sawdust. Like the pine or oak from which he built beautiful things, Daddy's arms were stong and protective, yet gentle enough to bend to the winds of life and shade us from the heat and pressures that we would face.
For this reason, I am featuring today, items having to do with trees or made of wood by my fellow Sheteam members.
