As I said goodbye to summer, my bf and I also said goodbye to the sweetest bird we’ve ever had. Our budgie had suffered from seizures for the past year. There were months that she seemed very healthy, and then she would become extremely weak, even struggling to balance herself on the perch. It was heartbreaking to witness and we felt so helpless. We did our best to nurse and keep her comfortable, and more often than not, she would make a speedy recovery. On her last night, she looked like her happy self, swaying back and forth on her swing (her favorite place). The next afternoon, after I came home from work, I found her at the bottom of the cage while my other budgie chirped loudly waiting for her to answer him back. I know that she was just a bird and this post may be silly, but I really loved her and was truly saddened by her passing. So much so that I surprised myself when I broke down and cried as I held her in my hand.
I’m thinking of creating an embroidery piece of my Clementine as a little memorial. It’s kinda my way of saying goodbye. I’ll share my progress in future posts. Talk soon, Sue
PS I’ll be posting more often this month. The beginning of school is always hectic and I’m finally getting to my groove, so I’ll have more time to blog!
