Flu in The Shoe

Living in a giant shoe can make for some pretty interesting adventures, especially for the old woman (Mother) and her very large family of 20! On this occasion, Mother discovers all of her children have the flu! See what mother does in caring for her children (those she birthed and those she adopted) as her love is displayed in the endless running from one to another.

Loosely based on the nursery rhyme of the old woman who lived in a shoe, this mother does not "whip them all soundly" before putting them to bed. She loves them with a capacity beyond herself while seeking wisdom from above for the situations her family gets into and always gives thanks in the end.
