The first woman saw an old house, deteriorated and neglected, and began to dream of fully restoring it to its intended condition.
The second woman looked at an old house, curled her nose, and took to sketching out her dream home.
The first sought to understand the original architecture, the period's wood and stone, the history of the property and those who had used the house before.
The second comparison-priced general contractors, then went shopping for paint colors, sofas and interior design magazines.
The first was thrilled to see the house returning to itself after so many years.
The second was thrilled to see her plans becoming a reality.
The first woman, after a great many months, made the house everything it was meant to be.
The second woman soon made the house everything she'd always wanted.
Both women's hearts were good.
But only the first house felt loved.
