THE BIRDFEEDER ANALOGY
by Michael Cloud (paraphrased)
Recently, I went home to visit my parents for the weekend. And you know that no matter how old you are, your parents will make you feel like you don't know how to take care of yourself.
As I looked out the kitchen window, I noticed several birds huddled around a birdfeeder. Later in the day, I realized the feeder was empty. I said, "Mom, where do you keep the birdseed? I want to refill the feeder."
Mom replied, "It's under the sink, but read the instructions first."
"But Mom, I think I can refill it without reading the instructions." (She obviously thought I wasn't capable of doing this simple task without help)
"Just read the instructions."
So I picked up the box, and realized that sometimes parents really do know what they are talking about. It read:
DO NOT IMMEDIATELY REFILL THE FEEDER. IF YOU DO, THE BIRDS WILL COME TO DEPEND ON YOU FOR FOOD AND THEY WILL NOT LEARN TO FEND FOR THEMSELVES. WAIT AT LEAST A DAY BEFORE REFILL.
I think there is a lesson to be learned here.
Do YOU get it??
