This unexpected duckling surprise will be named * Charlie Duck* . We have a friend going through cancer treatment that has always referrred to himself as Charlie Duck. This will be my baby's name. Charlie duck is my first experience with ducks. Not my first experience with friendship. Charlie will be with us for a long time, hopefully. Good timing for us. Makes me reconsider what friendship is all about. We learn through our life experience. We don't always know why things, people are with us, but it becomes clear through time. Hug your friends. Hug your family. They are here now, but won't always be.
