Through the Window
 

A young couple moves into a new neighborhood.

The next morning while they are eating breakfast, the young woman sees her neighbor hanging the wash 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.

Everytime her neighbor 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.

Before we give any criticism, it might be a good idea to check our state of mind and ask ourselves if we are ready to see the good rather than to be looking for something in the person we are about to judge

Very cool Karol.

I like reading the politics section cuz I'm trying to prolong the life of my fistula and my BP is so low now without all my old BP meds.
It's been working like a charm.

Politics and religion are off limits for me so I don't read or post in those threads. I prefer NASCAR and football when I want to argue.

Very good advice.  I feel that too many people spend their time finding fault with life instead of just enjoying.  Thanks for the reminder.
