My time with my grand daughters has always been precious to me
and now that we've decided to move back to the States - away from them...
it's even more precious.
I can't imagine the heart break of the families who have lost children.
Well. I don't want to imagine it.
And when Diana Trout put out a call on Face Book for people to make prayer flags for Newtown,
I thought, I hoped, maybe I could help relieve some of the pain with my prayers...
with my flags.
Diana has since teamed up with Leighanna Light
who has begun a facebook page entitled The Hope Flag Project
My understanding of the "new version" of prayer flags
is that after they're made
they're hung outside in the elements
where they eventually disintegrate.
And as they fall apart over the weeks, months...
the prayers are carried by the air
to bring comfort and solace
to those in need.
Because we don't have a yard,
mine are hanging outside my apartment door.
Create your life...
