Today marks 7 months since sweet little Oisin's passing. I don't feel like I can talk to anyone about it really other than the forum members so thanks for listening. I have so many fond memories of little 'Tickles' or 'Chirpies' and I wish he was still here. There isn't a day that goes by that I don't not only think of him but talk to him and then I well up.
I hope that you are at peace Oisin and chirping your sweet little song with all the other angel birdies.

We remember them for the rest of our lives, these little pet's who wiggle their way into our hearts and then take a piece with them when they leave. Thankfully, over time the sadness diminishes, and we think of them with mostly joyful rememberances. I believe he is in a very happy place, and hopes your sadness is short....7 month's isn't that long, we do understand my friend...
He came down from Heaven unto this earth below
He came down from glory and praises untold
He came down to man fashioned in their way
He came down to rescue, He came down to save
I totally feel you, my friend and remember cute little Oisin well.
Almost 2 weeks has passed and my Princess has not escaped my thoughts since, and her passing also brought back memories of Lily - my little parrotlet loss back on 3/27/2014. These reoccurring thoughts truly mean they're forever in our hearts and can be just as comforting as painful - for they are still with us in spirit and will always be, Niamh.

Niamh, it's nice to have a place to come to where others truly understand. As Randy said, 7 months isn't that long. I know it can take a very long time. Even though we love all our birdies, some just make a bigger impact on us, and it takes longer to get over. It can be rough I know
I can also really understand this. I wasn't prepared for the grief I have for Cody (2 months gone from us). I wasn't expecting to feel as much love for him as I did/do.. He was my first budgie.
I've lost many animal friends in my life; some losses are harder than others...
And for me, it's true what the others say about our little ones remaining with us in spirit.. that's the good memories for me.
I'm happy you have those special memories of Oisin..
Niamhf I can't believe that 7 months has gone by so quickly... Oisin is looking over you with love. Niamhf i no you loved Oisin so much he will be always in your heart forever. Oisin would not want you to be sad he would want you to be happy.
I thought you might like your tribute to Oisin i had made for you 7 months ago....
Oisin is forever in your heart... Never forgotton always loved...
Your sweet little boy is still with you , Niamh let him bring a smile to you by remembering his chirpies or a smile as you remember his tickles. He will never leave you. We here do understand and it is hard, the tears do help, as do all of us helping each other when these times come to us . Your little boy is with our Angel Flock , he is merely a thought away . Niamh Oisin is a special budgie who truly formed the most loving bond that can be, let him give you the comforting thoughts and smiles as often as needed. We are all here for you always
We understand your grief, your pain and your sadness.
Missing Oisin is part of the normal grieving process and although never easy, it is something we all face with loved ones, whether pets or humans.
One conscious act helps me when I find myself missing those who have moved on.
I work to concentrate on "gratitude".
It may sound odd, but when you put yourself into a state of gratitude, being thankful for the time you were given with another wonderful being for whatever amount of time you shared, the pain lessens somewhat.
Every moment I had with my loved ones was a blessing. Conscious recognition of those blessings brings me to a more grounded and centered place of peace.
In Memories, may you find Healing
In Time, may you find Peace
In the Power of Love, may you find Comfort
Please feel free to contact me via Private Message anytime you want to talk, my friend.
I am fortunate to have never lost one of our 4 birdies. We have however lost a cat we had for 5< years, and that still hurts. I'm never going to get fully over it or forget but I feel as though that is a partly a good thing. I wish you a great life and may Oisin rest happily.
