Through The Kitchen Window

A young couple moves into a neighborhood.  The next morning while they are eating breakfast, the wife sees her neighbor outside hanging the wash on a clothesline.  "That laundry sure doesn't look very clean," she says to her husband over the breakfast table. "That woman must not know how to wash clothes correctly, or maybe she needs to use better laundry detergent."  The husband listens but doesn't comment.

The same thing happens again a couple of days later and then again a few days after that, and the pattern continues for several weeks.  Every time the wife sees the neighbor hanging her wash to dry, she makes the same comment, and the husband stays quiet.  

One day, though, the wife looks up from the breakfast table and says in a surprised voice, "Look! The clothes look clean!  I guess she's finally learned how to wash clothes correctly,  I wonder who taught her!"  The husband replies, "I got up early this morning and cleaned our windows."

And so it is with life ... what we see while watching others depends on the clarity of the window through which we look.
