The Window Through Which We Look

A young couple moves into a new neighbourhood.

The next morning while they are eating breakfast,

the young woman sees her neighbour hanging the washing outside.

"That laundry is not very clean", she said.

"She doesn't know how to wash correctly.

Perhaps she needs better laundry soap."

Her husband looked on, but remained silent.

Every time her neighbour would hang her wash to dry,

the young woman would make the same comments.

About one month later, the woman was surprised to see a

nice clean wash on the line and said to her husband:

"Look, she has learned how to wash correctly.

I wonder who taught her this."

The husband said, "I got up early this morning and

cleaned our windows."

And so it is with life. What we see when watching others

depends on the purity of the window through which we look.

Had that before.

Very good! And true...

Reminds me of something I read:

Two men sitting behind bars,

the one saw mud, the other saw stars...
