A quote from "Sabrina" by Lori Wick.
"'What are you doing?' Jessie Wheeler asked of Hannah, her older daughter, when she found her digging behind one of the counters of Wheeler's Mercantile.
'Looking for a rag.'
'Why do you need it?'
'I'm going to dust that shelf over there.'
Jessie, who owned and operated the mercantile, looked over at the shelf her daughter pointed to. It did need dusting, but the bottom ones always did. She had two customers in the store but ignored them in order to bend down on her daughter's level.
'I think you should go and play,' Jessie said gently to the child, who tended to take life very seriously. 'You just finished with school. Don't you want to enjoy your summer a little?'
'But who will dust the shelf?'
'I don't know right now, but I do know this: The dust will wait for us.'" (emphasis all mine)
