A house becomes a home when you can write "I Love You" on the furniture.
I can't tell you how many countless hours I have spent CLEANING! I used to spend at least eight hours every weekend making sure things were just perfect "in case someone came over." Then I realized one day, that no one came over because they were all out living life and having fun.
Now when people visit, I find no need to explain the condition of my house. 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 hear this advice:
LIFE IS SHORT!!! ENJOY IT!!!
Dust if you must ... but wouldn't it be better,
to paint a picture, bake a cake or plant a seed;
Ponder the difference ...
between what you want and what you need?
Dust if you must ... but there's not much time,
with rivers to swim and mountains to climb;
Music to hear, books to read,
friends and family to cherish and a 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 or shower of rain,
this day will not come back again.
Dust if you must ...
but bear in mind;
Old age will come,
and it isn't always kind.
And when you go ---
and go we all must;
You, yourself ...
will make more dust!
