This weekend will be Decoration Day for my husbands father and brother's cemetery and Homecoming for New Georgia Baptist church for us to care for my mother, Papa and Nanny's spots. So some may ask what does that mean? Well yearly, usually spring, you will have a time designated to clean up your families cemetery plots for the Sunday's service dedicated as Homecoming. It is a really good thing, The families will come in and clean up the years weather damage, growing weeds, flowers needing replacing, and general sprucing up. To me it is a good time to take care of those that have always taken care of you. While my belief is my family is not there, they are in a much better place, I still honor them by taking care of these things. This year I changed my mother's flowers for every holiday occasion. My personal choice. But if your cemetery does not have one designated clean up day, please take a little time to clean and spruce it up. I do know they are cemeteries that have perpetual care and they take care of things but it wouldn't hurt to just check up and make sure it looks nice.
