A young couple moves into a new neighborhood. The next morning, while they are eating breakfast, the young woman sees her neighbor hang 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. Every time 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.

It's not 'Easy" to keep our windows clean. We try!! I write and perform music with a group called 4us. The last song on our Cd is titled "The Good". You can hear a sample of it once I figure our how to put it on our iPeace page/site. Enjoyed your comments! We include "Easy" and "Zoom " in our show songs, my favorites! Thanks again! Peace,love,happiness.....Mery '4US'

As a mother of a child with a disability this story, similar to others I have heard resonates with me well...its not we see, its how we see it.....
