Love versus Obligation

A house is a house is a house until love comes through the door , that is. And love intuitively goes around sprinkling that special extra that transforms a house into a very 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 cares 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 is not appreciated. But love learns to laugh a lot and to work for the sheer joy of doing it.

Obligation can pour a glass of milk , but quite often love will add a little chocolate. Author Unknown
