Thank you for sharing that experience. Joni (Mitchell, I'm guessing?) was indeed a lucky little bird to have found her
way into your hands. She lived a long life with much love,
and that is a huge gift for a budgie. My sympathies for her
But the bright side of this is that to honor Joni and the love
you have for her, you went right out and found another
budgie who so desperately needed it. He'll never replace
Joni, of course, but what greater honor to her memory than
to let another in need budgie fill her space for a time.
Hugs, sympathy, good vibes, and positive energy to both of you, Joni, and the new J.B.
Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly. And never regret anything that made you smile.
