A Quick Daily Study: Stanza 35

I was a little kinder to myself this morning and didn’t push to get on the treadmill. I took a few minutes to myself and relaxed in bed before getting up. I even washed my hair and did some skin care. Now, I’m sitting with a cup of ice cold coffee and writing this. I have set up my Friday Fictioneer post, paid some bills, and even have a great idea for today’s photo. I’ll get on the treadmill tonight and probably even do some grocery shopping. Here we are with today’s stanza (skipped yesterday because it was an ‘honest’ weigh-in day):

Pocket Version:
A guest should depart, not always
stay in one place. The guest becomes
unwelcome, if he too long stays in
another’s house.

Chisholm:
Then the guest should go.
He should not stay too long in one stead.
When one stays too long in another’s house,
love turns into loathing.

This reminds me of some homespun words my grandmother would spout, ‘don’t wear out your welcome.’ I always try to make sure that if we have to stay overnight with the kindred that it is possible, first. If not, then other plans are made. I think this is a great reminder for people who tend to take advantage of the situation end up becoming the ‘regretful’ guest.

Happy Friday Y’all!
