So, here I am again, posting about Eclipse. This time it's a bit more optimistic. I still think about her a lot, but instead of wondering how I could have prevented her passing, I try to think about what she's "taught" me.
You may remember the little antics I used to post about Eclipse: her ability to confuse me by escaping her completely closed soft crate, sleeping at the back of my neck, and the way she spent most of her time as close to her heat lamp as possible... Well, these things all got me to thinking that perhaps there was a deeper meaning to everything she did.
I'm not usually spiritual in any way, but I have a firm belief that things happen for a reason. I've always felt that there was something more to Eclipse, especially now when I go over old pictures. There is something in her eyes that I don't see in my other budgies. She was extra special. Eclipse chose me that day because she needed someone to love her, and I needed to learn a few things from her.
This is my interpretation of it, and I want to share it.
