Prayer Flag

Our family moved to San Antonio 5 years ago, a town where we knew no one and knew very little about the city.  It has taken us a while to figure out the town and decide where exactly we needed to be.  And we are proud to say we are finally buying a house after five grueling years of exploring and searching for our place.

This new home and new community brings new hope and promise for Nacho Family, so to honor this moment, I made a prayer flag.

I hope this home will be filled with love.  That’s really a given since the love is with us now… but do you ever want to hit the pause button in life because everything is so perfect and you never want it to change?  That’s right now for us.

I hope we will be blessed with good neighbors.  Neighbors who won’t mind when there are kick ball games in the cul de sac and will want to pull up a lawn chair and watch or even join in.

I hope I’ll have the garden I’ve been waiting years to create– with fertile soil enriched from my own black-gold compost.  Fresh flowers cut from my own garden.  Vegetables from the garden to nourish our bodies.

I wish for prosperity so that we can afford all my big plans.  The plantation shutters.  The hand-scraped wood floors.  The granite.  All in due time, of course.

And most importantly, healthy lives.  Without our health, the rest is pretty hard to achieve.

So, as soon as we close on the house, I’ll hang this prayer flag on my fence and let the wind carry my prayers and hopes until it is time for new ones.

If you are interested in making your own prayer flag, this is the tutorial I used.
