My Most Beloved Friend "Mama"

Died in my arms this morning ~ Easter Morning~
There was nothing wrong with her last night. She was only a year and a half. I found her in our alley last fall and she was the sweetest, friendliest chicken I've had. She'd sit in my lap, I could carry her around. She followed me everywhere. I am grieving her terribly. She was such a loyal friend. She lay blue/green eggs.... and I miss her so...

So sorry Pattee. The loss of an animal is always hard. Keeping you in my thoughts.

OH! my goodness...this is so sad! I feel just awful for you. I know all too well how these animals can worm their way into your heart and become SO special! And to happen so suddenly that you don't have time to prepare yourself for the loss. I am sending out a big hug to you and I wish I could do more for you. It's been such a hard year. You are in my thoughts - your blogger friend, Cindi

I read that and cried... She was just ready Pattee.. just ready to go..
Sometimes we don't know why.. and I think sometimes we aren't supposed to know why.. Embrace what you had with her. Fold it up in your heart and there it will stay for all time~

Thanks for the note Pattee! Oh I am crazy for my dog so I do understand.. and I swear she understands me!
I have been around. You know me I am just slow... I don't have enough hours in the day to keep up with everything so I always fall behind on things.. and bloggins seems to always pull up the rear for me.. but I do pop in when I can and enjoy catching up and seeing what everyone has been up to! Just wish there was more hours in the day!
