For April 2020, WordPress has brought back its Discover prompts. Each day a new blogging theme is outlined for bloggers taking an interest.
Today I saw the prompts have been taken over by Michelle Weber. Today she proposed considering hands.
About being a helping hand, I lend assistance to a family business, Maple Lawn. My dad and I direct the operation of Maple Lawn Cemetery, a small cemetery in our town whose operations we manage weekly. You can find us on Facebook here: https://www.facebook.com/LouthUnited
This year we are managing cutting down a tree. The cemetery is surrounded by trees, and when the winds pick up, naturally, tree branches come down from the air. We usually burn the fallen branches.
This year sparkles from the blaze flew into the tree beside the fire. The tree caught fire from the inside, strangely enough.
We had to bring down the tree and destroy it, as a good deal of the care we provide, for the cemetery, is for the sake of visitors, making the cemetery looking peaceful and cared-for.
I have a photo of how the ground looked around where the tree crashed when we sawed it down. It was very disorderly.
My responsibility at the cemetery is chiefly to be a helping hand to my father, Peter. I also handle the Facebook page for the cemetery, a portal through which we are available.
I took both snapshots and video of the ramifications of lighting that tree in flame and bringing it down. When Michelle today was asking interested bloggers to reflect on the idea of hands, I thought to point out again that I’m a helping hand to my father, who is in his seventies and getting eccentric but still dedicated to operating the cemetery.
I hope you like the photo, and that you are staying safe during COVID-19.
