Rest in Peace Horis

We woke up to sadness on Monday.  One of my sons birds passed away sometime in the night. And even though I am not too fond of birds, the sadness of my son was so hard to watch.  Life lessons stink.

So my son wanted to have a memorial service for Horis.  No we did not bury him in our home, but he wanted to see his tombstone everyday, so we placed it under the bird-cage where the other bird still lives.

Middle Bit went outside, cut some flowers, and placed them in a jar.  The cool thing about the sunflowers is that two were growing together. back to back.  I do not know if you can tell from this picture, but he thought Horis would like it.

We said a few word and a prayer.  I took pictures of this moment, but then the tears came flooding and I thought pictures would not be wise.  He cried and cried.  It was so very sad.  I was touched to see what a kind, soft heart my son has.  He loves animals and all living things.  He cares deeply and that is what I treasure about him.

But as the “service” came to an end, my son asked if he could watch Merlin, and then suddenly he was better.  Oh to rebound from tragedy like a child.  Yes, he thought of Horis throughout the day, but he thought of him with happiness not sadness.

This is the other quality I treasure in my son, the ability to be happy and carefree.

Have a great day everyone!

Love,

Suzy
