Also, while I was out that day, I visited the graves of my Granny and Great Granny. I have tried to visit them a few times before but hadn't been able to locate where they are resting. This time, I called the cemetery and asked. Since they were in an odd spot, the man working came out to pick me up and took me to them. Yes, I got into a stranger's car in a cemetery. Living on the edge! Finally, we found them and I was able to spend a good amount of time quietly reflecting upon much. I needed it dearly. I don't think I realized how much I did need it until I was there.
After that, I came home and spent the rest of my day in the hammock finishing up a book while watching Brent work on our vegetable garden, listening to Rio play with 'Meryl', and having Mondo visit periodically. Every flower and leaf Rio came across was a gift to me. It was perfect.
