TERRIFIC 2'S TUESDAY
LOVE VS. OBLIGATION
A house is a house - until love comes through the door, that is. And love intuitively goes around sprinkling that special brand of angel dust that transforms a house into a ver special home for very special people: your family
Money of course, can build a charming house, but only love can furnish it with a feeling of home
Duty can pack an adequate sack lunch, but love may decide to tuck a little love note inside
Money can provide a television set, but love controls it and caraes enough to say no and take the guff that comes with it.
Obligation sends the children to bed on time, but love tucks the covers in around their necks and passes out kisses and hugs, even to teenagers.
Obligation can cook a meal, but love embellishes the table with a potted ivy trailing around slender candles.
Duty writes many letters, but love tucks a joke or a picture or a fresh stick of gum inside
Compulsion keeps a sparkling house, But love and prayer stand a better chance of producing a happy family
Duty gets offended quickly if it isn't appreciated. But love learns to laugh a lot and work for the sheer joy of doing it.
Obligation can pour a glass of milk, but quite often love will add a little chocolate.
Most of us do somethings we are obligated to do, but the things we enjoy the most are the things we love to do. More and more I'm trying do things I love to do and if they happen to be an obligation then it's double the fun. Love does make all the difference. Instead of moving, doing, and achieving for obligation's sake I have chosen to do it for loves sake.
Living the good life is about living in a loving way.
I hope you all have a TERRIFIC Tuesday !
