Once upon a time there was a little girl and like most little children she sometimes got sick - attacked by all those childhood bugs that lurk around…

Her mom and dad were determined to do sickness the right way.

What's that, you ask.

They didn't want to reward her so that sickness became a tempting default, but on the other hand they didn't want to vilify an inevitable part of life…

They said, "We're sorry you're sick", and then they proceeded to find ways to make that state of being tolerable for a young human.

There were the special coloring books and crayons, the wonderful stories and lots of hugs and kisses…

Their goal was to teach the little girl that there are many different states of being - not good or bad - just being.

What do ya say?

Can you see how this fable translates?
