Dust If You Must....
~~ Author Unknown~~

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, and 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.

Remember, a house becomes a home when you can write
"I love you" on the furniture.....

    emoticon I so enjoyed reading that & I thank you for posting it!

I had just been saying to our eldest how keeping up with my dusting is an every other day chore for this gal. We live in an arid climate & dust seems to be everywhere. It is not as bad as when we lived in the western part of the great state of Texas; however, it comes a close second. I will be sending this poem on to our daughters.

God bless!
