A house becomes a home when you can write "I
love you" on the furniture.
Countless hours can be spent cleaning the home.
It might take 8 hours every weekend to ensure things are
just perfect "in case someone comes over". However, most of the time no
one drops by; they are all out living their own lives and having fun!
Now, when people visit, you need no excuses to explain the "condition" of your
home. They are more interested in hearing about the things you've been
doing while living an exciting funfilled life.
Life is too short. Enjoy it!
Dust if you must, but wouldn't it be better to
paint a picture or write a letter, bake a cake or plant a seed, ponder
the difference between want and need?
Dust if you must, but there's not much time, with rivers to swim and
mountains to climb, music to hear and books to read, friends to cherish
and life to lead.
Dust if you must, but the world's out there with the sun in your eyes,
the wind in your hair, a flutter of snow, a shower of rain. A day
will not come around again.
Dust if you must, but bear in mind, old age will come and it's not kind.
And when you go - and go you must - you, yourself will be mere dust!
It's not what you gather, but what you scatter that are the
greatest stories of life.
