Dusting!

I uses to spend at least 8 hours every weekend making sure things were just perfect " in case someone came over". Finally I realized one day that no one came over, they were all out living life and having fun!

NOW, when people visit, I dont have 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 better to paint a picture or write a letter, bake cookies or a cake and lick the spoon 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 mountain 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 sun in your eyes, the wind in your hair and 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!

It's not what you gather, but what you scatter that tells what kind of life you have lived...and remember, a layer of dust protects the wood beneath it.

Sally...rumah tu tempat kita berteduh...asalkan ianya bersih dan selesa untuk kita anak beranak...alhamdulillah...tak payah lah kita jadi 'hamba rumah' kan? Nanti kita akan terlepas masa2 berharga untuk bersama anak2 ketika kita berada di rumah...

apa-apa pun biar bersederhana kan kak Jie. Lehih tidak, kurang pun tidak..

kenkadang sedikit sepah akan mencantikkan lagi rumah, kann.
