The workers at the cemetery are lovely and often come over to me when I'm at the cemetery and fill me in on what the plans are for both Noah's and Aaron's graves, so I knew that they were planning on putting the lawn seed down in Aaron's section during autumn.
Over a month ago we were excited to see that they were finally starting to level off the graves in Aaron's section.
We kept going back every day to see if there was any progress made, but it took another couple of weeks before they put down top soil and lawn seed. After a little while we stopped going up and checking every day because there wasn't much happening as they were busy doing work in other sections.
I had so much on my mind when I was thinking about selling and moving house and I hated being at home, so I spent a lot of time at the cemetery in the months leading up to putting our old house on the market.
Since moving into our new house we haven't been going to the cemetery as often. We were surprised when we went for our weekly visit after church a few weeks ago, to see that they had finally put down some top soil.
The person who had reserved the grave opposite Aaron's passed away just a few weeks ago, so now there is a fresh grave opposite him.
A week ago we went back and were excited to see little shoots of grass starting to pop up.
We couldn't believe it today when we pulled up. It's amazing what a difference a week makes! The grass looks so beautiful and green. We've had a great grass growing week, with some sunny days but also patches of rain.
It looks so much nicer now without all the dirt and mounds of dirt on top of each grave. It will be nice to take some flowers back up there now that I know they aren't going to be covered in dirt, dust or mud.As horrible as it is that Aaron actually has to have a grave, it's nice to have it looking so much nicer now.
