Wow What A Week!!!!

Last week was a busy week for me, but I loved it. It all started last Sunday on Mother's Day. Sunday morning I went to the church that my late grandmother went to. They had special singers and a special speaker. Then Sunday night I went to my church and they had four preachers preach.

Monday through Thursday I went to the annual Spring Jubilee. It was so fun, even if it was cold most of the week and it rained the whole time we were there on Thursday night. I'm glad that we were under a building. On Friday night I didn't get to go to Jubilee because I had a graduation party to go to. They had the biggest Jubilee crowd that night and they had the most people saved that night also.

On Saturday I went to a birthday party. My baby niece turned two years old. After the party we had to do a little shopping. When we got to the grocery store, I decided to sit in our van and I took a nap. I was so tired.

Yesterday we went to church, then after church the little girl my mom use to babysit came over to our house. I have to tell you what she said, little kids say the funniest things. Before we went home we stopped by the cemetery to put a pinwheel on my baby niece SueAnn's grave. So Olivia started to ask a bunch of questions because she did not know what a cemetery was. So we told her that when people died they buried them there. She then says, "Are they hiding?" And we all laughed and told her yes they were hiding in the ground. So for a few moments she doesn't say anything and then she says, "Is it because they are grounded?" LOL!!!!! Like I said kids say the funniest things.

OH! By the way did you know there is a difference between a graveyard and a cemetery. Well a graveyard is a small area of land situated next to, or around, a place of worship in which dead bodies and cremated remains were buried and headstones were set up. A cemetery is a place in which dead bodies and cremated remains are buried. Who knew??? I didn't until today.

Do the headstones make the difference? That is insteresting. I didn't know that either.

Sounds like you've had a very busy week. I know ALL about those. LOL

I noticed they didn't put anything about having headstones in a cemetery. But I think the main difference is the having a place of worship on the land. That would be so weird not to have headstones in a cemetery. LOL!!!
