Young Maria, only four years old, returned home from Nursery School complaining, “Mummy, I’ve got a stomach ache.”
“That’s because your stomach is empty,” Sarah, her mother replied kindly. “You’ll feel better when you have something in it.”
She made Maria a small snack and sure enough, maria felt better immediately.
Later that afternoon the pastor, a family friend, dropped by to see Sarah. While he was chatting with Maria’s mum, he mentioned he’d had a bad headache all day long.
Maria perked up straightaway and announced to the pastor, “That’s because it’s empty, father. You’d feel better if you had something in it!”
Is it possible that we all see and hear things through our own unique lens?
