I read this story yesterday, and it’s too cute not to share.
Four years ago a man in Brazil found a penguin covered in oil and starving on a beach. He cleaned him, cared for him, named him (Dindim) and nursed him back to health before releasing him back into the wild.
Every year Dindim the penguin travels thousands of miles back to see the retired fisherman who rescued him, and spends 8 months living with him in his house.

Isn’t that just precious?
I think there’s a life lesson in there too. Not to swim thousands of miles cross the sea every year. But to not forget people who have been there for us. To show some love and appreciation. You don’t have to spend 8 months with them. Just a call, text, or visit to let them know you appreciate them.
Everyone needs a Dindim.
Be someone’s Dindim today.
Thanks, as always, for reading. x
