I’m really liking these “Wisdom Wednesdays”. It gives me a chance to share meaningful quotes from others that have supported and enriched my life. So far my choices have been spiritual, profound. Today’s selection is lighter, but important as well, I think. It has helped me bring my perspective back to a healthier place more times than I can count. I no longer know its author, if ever I did. May this inspire you to do something fun.
“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.”
Remember, a house becomes a home when you can write “I love you” on the furniture…
