a family penguin is down, but not out.

“you take a crash, you get back up and next time you succeed and that’s a great feeling.”

  1. I read another version of that quote this morning in a beautiful new book I received called “The boy, the mole, the fox and the horse”. It’s by Charlie Mackesy. The mole’s version is “If at first you don’t succeed, have some cake.” I like both versions!

  2. Such a great analogy, Beth!
    The image reminded me of my son who put his plush penguin out in the snow two days ago. He dug a little cave and put it inside… my son is already 18! They never grow too old for such ideas… lol
