Children's story about effort and perseverance
At the foot of a castle there was a beautiful garden with tall, leafy green pine trees where a family of storks had settled.
That year was not too cold and, therefore, the storks decided to stay there to spend the winter and not migrate to Africa as they did other years.
One morning a strong wind arose that unleashed a great storm and, it happened with such violence that split the branch and threw the nest to the ground.
The storks when they saw their house on the ground and the wounded tree became very sad; but, immediately they got down to work to raise their nest again in another branch of the same tree.
Monotony returned to the nest. The pair of storks with large white wings, thin necks, fine beaks and very long legs, went out every day to look for food and sticks and branches to feed their little ones and keep their precious nest in good condition and in order. From the castle they were used to listening to the noisy crotoreos they produced crashing their beaks.
One night it began to snow. It was snowing three days in a row and so much snow fell that the branches were split by the weight, el and the nest they had lifted with so much effort fell to the ground , leaving the storks badly wounded and very sad.The storks demonstrating once again their strength and courage in the face of adversity did not give up and soon after, they began to build their nest again, giving a great lesson of life to all who lived there.
