only four little ducks
I spent all morning cleaning and disinfecting the duck house, pools, and aviary, which made me late to church.
My mind keeps singing, "five little ducks went out to play, over the hills and far away, GrMa Duck said quack quack quack, but only four little ducks came back." I know it isn't the same; Queenie passed with her flock family around her. But yesterday we had five duckies and now we are down to four. Loving and caring for such fragile creatures is not for the faint of heart.
One more things I want to say. It was sadly sweet to see our other duckies love her and comfort her in her last hours.
We do everything we can ... and sometimes that is not enough. Rest in peace Queenie, the humans will certainly miss you.
