Wouldn’t you know it - when I announced my Thirty One fundraiser in yesterday’s blogpost, I initially made a mistake in giving out the Thirty One link. And of course I didn’t catch it until the post was automatically emailed out by Google. :( I did fix it in the post. Here it is again:
Jump to our party page by clicking https://www.mythirtyone.com/NikkiHuffman/ , click on "My Parties" on the left, and then clicking on "The Lilly Memorial Projects Thirty-One Fundraiser."
I’ve mentioned before that one of our Silkie Bantam chicks is a runt. Tabby named her Taffeta and Hunter says she’s so small because she has Trisomy 18 like Lilly did. I greatly enjoy watching the chickens running around our backyard. But suddenly the other day, I just felt like bursting into tears watching cute little Taffeta trying so hard to keep up with the “big” chicks. She reminded me of Lilly! (OK ... the logical part of my brain says “stop!” You are associating a chicken with your daughter because it is almost her birthday and she isn’t here to celebrate it with you and so that is why you’re thinking of her more than usual and wanting to cry at so many things. Self - logic talk over - let’s just go with this.)
As I watched Taffeta, I thought - she just may be the chick that makes me cry when she dies.
