I can barely see the words I'm typing, I'm crying so hard! cry cry

Last night, I let the "M" cage out for playtime in the glider-torium...when I put them back, I counted only 5 noses (there should have been 6). I didn't think much of it, I figured the missing "M" would appear by morning.

This morning, I went in to feed mealies...nobody came jumping on me with the "Mom where have you been?" kind of attitude I would expect. I was worried & did a little searching, but I had to go to work today. I told my husband about the "loose glider" and he went in a couple times to search for himself, with no luck.

As the day continued, my feelings became worse & worse. I tried to call my husband to have him check in the garage (we have a dryer hose and water hook-ups that go through the wall of the gliders' room & a 4-month-old glider COULD squeeze past) at the advice of one call I'd received, but he was somewhere else & couldn't get home.

After another hour of searching, I remembered that suggestion....curled up in a grocery sack (and much much too late for me to help her) was my little Morticia. I have several bags of fleece for her to snuggle into out there....if only she had found them.

It's going to be SO VERY VERY DIFFICULT for me to show her brothers & parents what has poor little girl. gangel

I know how horrible you feel believe me. I went through a similar ordeal with Fivel and I know all about the "if I had only been there to find him" agony. I can't tell you anything to ease your pain but I do totally understand it.

Denise, my heart is broken for you. cry I hate hearing this news, but it's so much worse when it's a close friend losing a baby. I know how much you do for all of the gliders, not just your own. hug2 You are more than welcome to call if you need to talk, get your mind moving or just have someone listen to you cry. If I had the cash, I'd even offer to come and give you a hug. I love ya girl. I'm sorry.

Thank you all for your kind words. They are comforting.

Right now I just wander from room to room, crying my heart out. I showed everyone in her colony except Minka what happened (she has a brand new joey coming out & I don't want to upset her worse than I know she is right now)...all the boys gave her a lick on her forehead or ears. I wrapped her in a piece of butterfly fleece & she will be laid to rest in the Memorial Garden come the springtime, and a special perennial flower will be purchased for her.

I grabbed every plastic grocery bag that I could find and shoved it around the hoses and dryer vent. Right now that's all I can do to prevent this from happening again...

My friend, I'm so sorry. Many many hugs. Call if you want, anytime.

Denise, I am so sorry this has happened to you sweetie. You are such a good person, we ask why these things happen to the good people, there is no answer known to us at the time. I believe there is a reason for all things that happen and someday, you will know. You have saved so many and have helped so many. Lean on us for some comfort. Morticia is playing now and will be waiting for you.

Much LOVE and tons of HUGS to you lady
Keeper of Handprints on my Heart, You left your Footprints on my soul.
My precious loves that left to quickly, Peanut, Katie
Isabella, Kiwi, Bonnie and Monroe.

Spread your wings and glide free of pain,
Until the day I see you again.

God speed my precious angels. I love you. Mama.

Thank you...

There are lessons which we must learn as glider slaves, but WHY they have to be taught to us like this is far beyond my ability to understand right now. Someday I hope to have it all explained to me, or at least made a little more clear. If I sit back and listen closely, maybe it will come.

In the meantime, I must carry on. Broken-hearted, teary-eyed & hurting, but I must.

My condolences on your little Morticia - she is with all the other little SG's that have gone over the Rainbow Bridge - playing and having fun - I know you will miss her but she also knew you loved her and that's what counts -

RIP little Motricia
