The Uglified Ducky

We heard our first Maynard Moose story recently and fell in love with his “Moose speech.” A recent favorite was his narration of “The Uglified Ducky.” Below is the ending – applicable in so many aspects of our lives.

“So, if you ever feel you’re a giraffe being raised by a family of gerbils. Or a ladybug raised by a family of elephants. Remember – that does not mean you are uglified.

No no no – that is a common misdeception. Just means you have not found out what you really are yet. So demember, everybody is a beautiful something or other.

Especially you.”

Powerful, beautiful, poignant.
