Spring is in full swing in my neck of the woods. For those of us here in the South, the heat, humidity and hurricanes are literally around the corner.
I took a few minutes today to give Sammy’s gravesite a spring cleaning, so to speak. Rather than pick out the leaves and sticks littering the mulch, I decided to scoop up the old pine nuggets and put down new. His grave marker I purchased online from www.forinfinity.com was wiped clean and restored to its original luster. Tomorrow I’ll replace the dead succulents in a small stone planter atop the mulch with live, healthy plants.
It felt good to spend a little “quality time” with him, working and visiting. It’s a place of respite and reconnection for me. I think he enjoys it too!
