I had been cleaning windows for almost 6 months before I actually cleaned the windows in my own house. Afterward, all I wanted to do was sit in front of my Living Room window and watch the world go by.
I watched my neighbors bringing home their groceries, I watched the walkers and dog-walkers pass, I noticed that my crocosmia’s were starting to flower and that my son and daughter don’t ever seem to stop smiling and giggling when they chase each other around the yard. After a while I noticed that I felt, well, really good. It was like the sensation you get when you take a very deep breath of air. In fact my view was so beautiful that I couldn’t help but go outside and enjoy it.
The next morning while my wife and I were having our “coffee date” on the front porch it came to me. “Beautiful Day! That’s it.”
Having clean windows didn’t make the world around me look beautiful. It already was. My clean windows made me finally take notice.
What’s your view? The Puget Sound, Mt. Rainier, the city skyline? Maybe it’s vegetables growing in the garden, your children playing “Tag” or the leaves changing color.
Whatever it is, it’s my job to enhance it.
It’s a Beautiful Day!
