If you ever feel bad (and who doesn't?) about having to leave your little one to go to work, you should watch this program about the life of penguins that I'm watching on Animal Planet TV–it’s The March of the Penguins.
I have seen lots of programs about penguins, but never one so attentive to the details of their existence and so sensitive to the dilemmas of their lifestyle. All I can think is, what was God thinking to make these creatures’ lives so hard? Now, clearly God knows what He's doing, so that seems like a crazy question. But maybe it's just this–that we human beings who struggle with our parenting issues can look at these valiant animal models and feel that we don't have it so bad after all.
I hope you'll have an opportunity to watch this soulful look at one of mother Nature's most extraordinary life stories. It's enlightening and inspiring.
