Default Our Darling Little Gracie Girl

Our darling little Gracie girl is gone. We knew this day was coming, but I don't think we are ever really ready to say goodbye. Oh how I am going to miss her.

I remember the day we chose this sweet cutie pie at the pet store. She had this adorableness and innocence to her that we just fell in love with. We knew we had to bring her home with us.

My dad was the one who came up with our new little girl's name. Gracie. For a gorgeous little budgie, full of charm, this was the perfect one for her.

It wasn't long before we discovered what a nervous little budgie she could be. When our hands went into her cage to clean her perches or give her fresh food or new toys, she'd practically hang off of her perches; anything to avoid those dreaded hands. This became part of her charm that seemed to always bring a smile to our faces and often a little giggle. That was our Gracie girl. A nervous nelly. And we loved her to pieces.

Out of our flock of budgies, Gracie was the one who devoured her soak mix and veggies. Aries and Phoenix would sometimes model themselves after her and munch away at these "yummy" snacks, but Gracie never hesitated. Her veggie dishes were often empty by the end of the day, unlike our little budgie boys.

The budgie boys and Gracie would spend many hours out of their cages together. The three of them would play, chase each other, sit atop curtain rods... all the things little budgies like to do. After a while, the boys started getting wooed by Gracie's charms and stunning beauty so squabbles would ensue over her. She was such a desirable girl. Who could blame the boys. She was simply gorgeous.

Amongst the flock, Gracie was the queen bee. Budgie number one in the pecking order. She commanded that position, and the boys respected that. When they would show off their fancy moves and sing their awesomely orchestrated songs in front of her, she never hesitated to let them know she wasn't interested. A few quick little beak jabs is all it took to put the budgie boys in their place. Though there were times when she welcomed their advances.

Six years with Gracie just didn't seem long enough. I could have watched her and cared for her forever; our darling little Gracie girl.

As emotional and heartbreaking as this was, I am grateful that I was with her during her final moments, stroking her as I held her, telling her I love her, trying to comfort her as she faded into a forever slumber.

Sweet dreams my little Gracie girl. We'll miss you. Phoenix was waiting for you with open wings, and now you are together...

Oh Kim, I just don't know what to say.

Goodbye little Gracie. You were so loved.

This was such a lovely yet sad post to read. I am so
incredibly sorry to hear of your loss; she sounded like
a wonderful budgie. I'll keep you in my thoughts as
during this sad time.

Aw, Kim, that time has finally arrived. Poor, poor Gracie. So sorry to hear the news, but you have such a wealth of fabulous memories, experiences, to remember her by, and to hold close when your heart is low. My thoughts are with you and your family.

Oh Kim, I'm so very sorry Gracie had a fantastic life with you, she couldn't have been more loved, and I know you will miss her terribly she is with Phoenix now and they are watching over you and Aries.

RIP sweet Gracie, fly high little one, together forever with Phoenix.

Oh Kim, I'm so sorry for the loss of your beautiful Gracie. She really was one of a kind and you were a great mommy to her in those 6 years- she couldn't have asked for anything more.
I don't think any of us are ever ready to let them go even though we know one day that day will come. In the end, it is as if somehow she was waiting for the right moment to die in your hands where she's always felt comfort
Fly free little Gracie over Rainbow Bridge.
