Good points to remember

My grandmother was all that I thought of while reading this. Beautiful woman who spent half her life dusting.
Dust if you must.. Omgosh I love this! So true & so needed! Today & many days after... I will not dust! Instead I will live & enjoy this life along side all those whom I could not go a day without.
Dust If You Must poem. So true!
OP: Not that I'm against dusting or cleaning, but it kind of puts things in perspective...don't take life too seriously. I know too many people who do
