Dust If You Must

I got this in my in box... wanted to share it.
How many of us are just existing and not really living?

Dust If You Must

How many countless hours have I spent cleaning? I used to spend
at least 8 to 12 hours every weekend making sure things were
just perfect, "in case someone came over." Then one day I
realized that no one came over; they were all out living life,
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 enjoying it!

If you haven't figured this out yet, please heed this advice:
Life is short - enjoy it while you can!
And people don't care if your house is spotless just as long as
they're welcome.

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!

My new surprise

This is what my daughter found as she walked into my kitchen....
My landlords, who by the way can't afford to put a new roof on my house because he got hurt and can't work, who are on a very tight budget because of it, who has to put their house up for sale in the spring, who have the other rentals on the market because they are hurting so bad financially, are in mexico for their annual vacation. I am soooooo ticked off it isn't even funny!!!!!!!!

so I guess they have just shown me once again that even tho I have been here for almost 10 years, and have never asked for anything, except when my laundry room did the same thing, I guess I still really don't mean shit to them.

BTW... I didn't know they went to Mexico until I called them to tell them about my rof... had to call the cell because there was no answer at their house. Ya know, my bed room was leaking really bad a couple months back... that is when she told me all of the stuff I said above... I actually felt bad for them... not any more.
