F.D. Crandall (fdcrandall) | 22 comments Here's a little tidbit I got in my e-mail this morning. I think it's perfect.

A young couple moved into a new neighborhood. The next morning while they were eating breakfast, the young woman saw 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."

And so it is with life. What we see when watching others depends on the purity of the window through which we look.

Very cool message, I think...

You know in life you do perceive what other people are like for an example most people get envious of some one with better houses, careers, money , cars, and health.
They themselves are in great houses, careers, financial success,drive great cars, and enjoy moderate health

They don't seem to realise that there are those who are not so well off.

Personally if I had to choose of all the above I would go for Good Health
