My house gets so lonely when my babies go nite-nite!

The whole personality of our home seems to change when I cover them for the day. While they are busy in their room eating and interacting with me, the house is so alive and feels so happy. I talk to them all day and the ones who wish to come out of their house and visit with mommy are so welcome to do so. I had to go grocery shopping this morning and when I got home, the first thing I heard was their happy welcome. Their innocent joy of knowing I am home never grows old. It lifts me up each time I hear it. They have been in such a heavy molt for a month now and when I hear one of them yell out when they pull an offending feather, I always tell them that mommy is sorry it hurt. They seem to understand that I am sorry and let them know. I don't know what I would do without them, but I do know I would not be the person I am today. They have taught me so much about unconditional love and such joy in the simple things of life. I feel that when my time comes to leave this earth, my heart will be full of bird feathers because they have filled it with so much love.
