Dust if You Must

Sunday, July 12, 2009


Something to think about....

"A house becomes a home when you
can write "I love you" on the furniture."
I can't tell you how many countless
hours that I have spent ,"CLEANING!"
I used to spend at least 8 hours every
weekend making sure things were just
perfect -"in case someone came over."

Then I realized one day that no one
came over; they were all out living life
and having fun!
Now, when people visit, I find no need
to explain the "condition" of my home.
They are more interested in hearing
about the things I've been doing while
I was away living life and having fun.

If you haven't figured this out yet,
please heed this advice.

....................Life is 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.
This day will not come around again.

Dust if you must, but wouldn't it be nice
to spend the day with someone you love.
A boat ride on a quiet lake, a walk in the
park, a day at the zoo.
So many swell things to do.

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 make more dust!

Share this with all the women
you know!
And better yet the men too!!
