#63936 - 10/19/05 04:31 PM A little guy

I didn't know if this was a good place to post this or not but I wanted to show how much a glider can touch your life in a very short time.

This was written in the memory of Chewbacca Aaron and called "A Little Guy".

He started out on one warm summer day. Scared and confused he started his journey. He met a new glider who would

soon be called Petal. She was a comfort to him as he met these new humans. These humans were big and scary and took

him from from the only place that he had ever known. But Petal was even more scared than he was so he knew that he

had to protect her. They took him to a new place that they called his new home. They also started calling him this

strange thing called Chewy. He didn't understand this but just figured that the humans were strange.

They opened up his cage and let him come out to explore. he was still scared and made some noises to try to scare

these new humans, but it didn't seem to work. So he tried something new, if he bit these people they would back off,

and that is what he wanted. So he kept this in mind while dealing with them. He thought that if he could keep these

new humans away everything would be O.K.

But then one of the humans decided that she wasn't afraid of him biting anymore, She called herself his mommy. All

though she wasn't able to fit in his cage she was kind of like his mommy, she had a pouch that she carried him

around in. She also made sure that he had water and all kinds of good fresh fruits. When he was eating she would pet

him and that kind of felt good. But he still was afraid of her and wasn't ready to trust her. So when ever she would

reach for him he would still bite her even though it didn't seem to deter her at all. He also realized that this

thing that they where calling him "Chewy" was his name and now whenever he heard it he would look.

She would bring him out every night and let him play and run around. Then these new humans brought them a new toy,

they called it a wodent wheel. Man that thing was really cool! They both liked to play with it. They put this new

toy in their cage and even when this human called their mommy would bring them out at night to play she would bring

it out so it was close. When he was with Petal playing he felt safe.

But then something changed, His glider companion Petal started to trust these new people and seemed to like running

around on them jumping from one of them to the other. He thought about this for awhile and decided to give it a try

himself. So one day when he was out playing with Petal and she climbed on mommy he also climbed on her. At first he

was really scared but she didn't hurt him at all, and she also let him climb back on to the table any time he wanted

and didn't try to take him away. so thinking to himself maybe this wasn't so bad. But he gave her a little bite

anyways just to show her that he was still the boss.

Then he noticed that when he heard his name that mommy was close and he could jump on to her and climb right up to

the top. Sitting on her head he could see all over the room and felt safe doing it. It was at that point he decided

that he could trust her. Now when he was scared of some loud noise or something else scary going on that mommy would

be right there giving him comfort and letting him hide in this soft peace of material that she carried around with

her. He also started looking for mommy when she would walk away. He didn't want her to far out of sight.

But then one night he didn't feel so good. He didn't know what was wrong but wanted to be near mommy. He cuddled

against her heart making him feel relaxed. But then he thought about it and started to get worried about Petal. He

wanted to find her and make sure that she was safe. He also didn't want mommy to worry about him so he decided that

he would act normal again. When he got back in with Petal he could in fact see that Petal was safe and playing in

their wodent wheel. He spent some time with her and deciding that Petal was and always would be safe. Chewy stayed

with Petal comforting her and telling her that there was going to be a change and he wasn't sure what, but she would

always be safe and in time would see him again. Petal was right from the beginning these humans where people that

they could trust even with his most prize thing, his Petal.

He laid down that morning and went to sleep. But this sleep was different, when he woke up there was hundreds of

other gliders around him running, climbing, and jumping around. But where was mommy? Then he could see her. She was

very sad but why? he thought to himself. He was happy and running around. certainly it couldn't be because of him.

It must be something else he thought. He now understood it was because mommy could no longer hold him and play with

him. He wanted to show her that he was O.K. and having fun, but how could he do this. If mommy only knew that he was

happy in his new place and having fun. He could also see his Petal and knew that she was scared because of being

without him but he knew that she would get use to it and before to long meet another companion that she would also

learn to love.

But then after giving it some thought he realized something, mommy would some day understand that he would never

have left his Petal with her if he didn't love and trust mommy with her. She would also realize in time that he

really didn't leave them that he would always be there watching over them.

He found out something else from the other gliders around him, What he has was called a family and it was the best

thing that he could have gotten. The thought lingered for awhile with him as he now knew why it also brought him

this other feeling and that was called love. That was right he loves his family and now where he was he found out

that his family was even bigger and he had other gliders that he also love and that love him.

Taking one last look at all he had learned in such a short time, he scampered of to go and play with all of his

family knowing that his family back on earth would be there for him to look in on any time he wanted and knowing he

was the luckiest glider around having so many others in his family that he loved and that loved him.

this was my husband that posted the tribute to chewie. John bought this little creature for me for my birthday. When he told me one day get ready we are going to pick up your birthday presents I was really surprised. Especially when I saw two suggied not just one. Well we both named them.
He of course chewie for short and her petal rose. Well we are now going through the greiving process and I really can not even begin to tell you how hard it is. I can'teven imagine how hard it is on Petal. So now we are looking for another male for
her and if anyone hears of one please give us a holler.
I don't want to lose her too. It really has broken my heart I
know that with time I will heal but I am very worried about Petal... <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crying.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/needhug.gif" alt="" />
