"The Window from Which We Look"

I received this from a friend, 
and feel it is well worth sharing.

A young couple bought a house, and moved into their new neighborhood.
          
The next morning while they are eating breakfast, the young woman saw her neighbor hanging the wash outside. “That laundry does not look very clean”, she said. “I don’t think she knows how to wash correctly. Perhaps she needs better laundry soap.” 
Her husband looked on, but remained silent. 


Every time the neighbor would hang her wash to dry, the young woman would make similar comments. After several weeks, the woman was surprised to see a nice clean wash on the line. She said to her husband, “Look, she has finally learned how to wash correctly! I wonder what did it.” 

The husband said, “I got up early this morning and cleaned our windows.”

Such is life. 
What we see when watching others depends on the purity of the window through which we look.

  1. Oh, if we only could realize that as we pass judgement on something or someone (and we all do from time to time). Wonderful post and I agree a great one to pass on. Good Morning, McGuffy 🙂
