Spring Cleaning

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 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!

Warm Regards,
