Clean Windows


Here in the Ozarks we still like to hang out wash, but in many cities now it's against ordinance. What could it hurt to hang out a clean line of wash? Therein lies the problem, read on...

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. 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." 

Moral: What we see when watching others depends on the purity of the window through which we look!

Hope you're having a great weekend...

    1. If I had a neighbor whose wash I could see... I'm afraid it would look dingy too! My windows need a good cleaning!

    1. I noticed the other day that our Super Walmarts are adding a fabic department again! Maybe people are missing the old fashioned crafts. Mom used to do embroidery and all our pillowcases had birds or flowers, butterflies or little Dutch Girls!

  4. Ouch! That reeks with truth.
    Psychologists have proven that
    we are seldom correct when we make
    judgements regarding other people.
    Makes one think. . .

    1. I am guilty of judging too quickly and then find out later how wrong I was.

    1. What's the old saying, "If you can't say something nice..." Sometimes the words just fall out before we think!
