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 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!
