It was early autumn morning、Just as the leaves were beginning to fall。
When an unexpected visitor arrived at a little town by the sea and with him began a remarkable story。
Elsewhere on this particular morning、a small boy was getting up in much the same way that he always did、looking forward to his normal routine、in his usual way。
But today was going to be anything but ordinary。
The first impressions are a funny thing、and it`s always wise to take a moment to consider this when something new turns up on your doorstep。
To the boy this all seemed a bit worrisome and yet he was not the sort of person to ignore someone who might need his help、and in any case his curiosity tended to get better of it and this was so very curious!
And even so、an uninvited guest could be a difficult situation at the best of times、especially when some visitors just don`t know that they`ve already outstayed their welcome。
And so in a tricky situation、it`s best to follow all the correct procedures。
But in this case there was really only one thing to do。
But it was a problem that would not be solved easily。
Now anyone could be forgiven when faced with such an uninvited problem for choosing the easy way out。
Then again that some people just don`t have it in them to do anything other than the right thing。
As the day unfolded the small boy began to realize that helping this stranger find the way home was a bigger problem than he had first thought。
And all this distraction was getting them nowhere、so the boy decided that some proper thinking was called for。
So much for the best-laid plans as too often a small voice is not heard in a wider world。
Yet when things aren`t going quite the way they should、it occurs to some that if something is worth doing、it`s worth doing yourself...
A boat is a wondrous thing、it carries with it all the possibilities you can think of in this world、and with a little planning and a little daring 、you can imagine all kinds of grand adventures!
And so the boy worked out an ambitious plan to get his visitor back where he belonged、but he never stopped to consider that for a moment just what his visitor was doing there in the first place!
Late into the night the small boy slept fitfully for tomorrow he was going to try to cross the ocean to the other side of the world。
Another beautiful morning、and all the preparations were in place、and for those who cared to look the little boat could be seem setting out a tremendous and uncertain journey。
The day gave way to night just as things seemed to be working out well、they began to a take turn for the worse。
The very long way from shore、small boat and both on board were about to find out just what the sea could do。
And there it flickered:The South Pole!
Finally the boy`s work was done。His task was complete!
It`s harder than you think to say goodbye to someone who`s become part of your life、especially when you haven`t noticed it happening。
And so this particular farewell is much harder than the boy imagined it would be、for although a parting is always sad、an awkward one is even more so。But you do what you have to do and juet get on with the things。
Suddenly the boy understood that perhaps someone wasn`t lost but really is lonely and maybe they weren`t the lonely one。
It`s all begin with someone lost and someone found、who is to say witch was witch?
There was a boy and there was a penguin、strangers from opposite sides of the ocean、and like the beginning of any friendship、there`s this remarkable story indeed!
