We lost a very special family member the other night. And no, this is not a real picture of her. :) Sweet Ella, our beta, has been with us for almost 3 years. She lived in the kitchen and loved to watch me wash dishes. She loved to eat her little tiny food. She loved for Macy to tap on her tank. We bought her at Pet Smart with one of Macy's little friends. Her friend named hers Elizabeth. Ella and Elizabeth were friends. We have fond memories of our time with Ella.
There were tears and a mini funeral. Picture all 4 of us in the bathroom, with a fish on a plastic spoon because we couldn't find a net. Troy and I felt like Cliff and Claire Huxtable. We said a prayer, Macy cried and then yes, we had to flush her. Macy is still sad. Reid laughed..a lot. He had to leave the bathroom. What is it with boys? He even said they were with Karen and Joe. And for those of you who don't know who they are...well they were Reid's goldfish when he was about Macy's age. ha! He also had a hamster named Doris. Who died a sad death. You would think he would be sentimental. :)
Tonight when I tucked Macy in bed she prayed for her and said she hopes that she is having fun in the bottom of the toilet. ha! I know that she will be praying for her for a long time.
Goodbye sweet Ella, we will miss you.
