days, there are many professional gardener with big recycling trucks
who will do your garden for you. and when you have your garden in
order, you will have nice grapes. The Chans and the Kongs, my ancestors
always had dirt in their fingers, even if they are principals, lawyers,
teachers. They love their gardens. http://abcwednesday-mrsnesbitt.blogspot.co.nz/

The August 19th – Day of Hope Prayer Flag Project is a profoundly
moving, poignant and healing event to break the silence surrounding the
death of babies and children. It is also an incredibly touching way to
honour their lives. Each year we have thousands of people taking part
across the globe, making this a truly inspiring event.
The Project itself begins on July 1st and will end on August 19th
2014. You can join the Project at any point between these two dates. We
invite you all to make a Prayer Flag in memory of your children that
have died. In the process of making your Prayer Flag you are able to
give yourself some time to honour your own personal journey and reflect
on your grief and healing as well. On August 19th we will be stringing
our Prayer Flags up in our homes, gardens or places that are significant
to us, all over the world. We will then be sharing them in photographs
and video clips with the rest of the world through social media.
