Lesson 1004 – Quotable Chicks

Friday’s Quotes for the Chicks


I love you and goodbye.

She didn’t make it and although we are saddened by this, what would have resulted in my two daughters melting into puddles of inconsolable tears has now caused a momentary pause, a reflection on the fleetingness of life and the heavy heart of death.

This is the beauty of inviting others into your life. You care for them and they bring you pleasure.

Sometimes they get sick and die.

But more often they don’t and you get to create memories together.

You begin to realize that there is a plan to life, a cycle of birth and rebirth. Over and over.

And you start to feel like a part of the whole.

 Be safe and see you all next week.

    It’s so sad to hear about the chick, at least you tried….it’s more than what others would do and she felt loved….

  2. I totally agree with the first comment. Death is something we all have to face. It’s part of life. The hardest part is when you don’t get to say goodbye in some way. Funerals are for the living in some ways.

    arent we all looking for a part to feel like we belong somewhere? its part of growing up an should be explained in a spritual perspective…. God brings people together for a reason? Happy resurection day…….In Jeus name respectfully no harm / no fowl

    “Sometimes they get sick and die. But more often they don’t and you get to create memories together.” Such true and beautiful words. The reason behind a great many things. You gave a sweet few moments to that tiny life, and I see a beautiful memory in that. We adopted two cats with FIV. They are likely to die young, but every day with them is a blessing, as they share their crazy lives with us, creating memories that will feed us long after they are gone to the rainbow bridge. Thank you again.
