Rep Power: 21 cutiepup is on a distinguished road
Today has not started out very well. I was almost to the salon this morning(about 10 mins away) and I passed a mother duck and 5 or 6 baby ducks. They were walking towards the highway from a golf course. Mother Duck walked to the highway starting to cross and as traffic passed she turned back and the babies followed. I thought to my self they will just go back the way they came. Then it dawned on me that they were heading across the road to the river. Traffic is heavy on this road and people don't slow down or pay much attention. So I looked in my rearview mirror and saw people braking as they were approaching where the ducks were. I decided to turn around and go back to stop traffic and help them cross. My heart sunk as I got closer the mother Duck was in the middle of the road she had been hit and 2 or 3 of the babies met the same fate. I looked over as I was pulling off the side of the road and saw 2 or 3 of the babies who had made it to the other side. I started to cry thinking if I would have thought quicker and stopped sooner the Ducks would be alive now. Another car coming from the opposite way also stopped. We began to look for the surviving baby ducks. We found one and I held it as the man who stopped tried to find the others. The brush and trees were heavy and we could not find the others. So the man took this baby duck with him and said he would make sure it was taken care of. I cried the whole way to work. And blamed myself for it. I got here late. No appts and noone was here. A client came in about 10 minutes after me and asked if I had allergies too. Of course this made me cry again after I told her what happened. I feel stupid for being so upset but I'm so stressed out with balancing the salon and family and then feeling like the lives of these Ducks was also my responsibility and I let them down too. I think I'm finally back together again. Words of Comfort PLEASE!!
