These two sayings go hand in hand. I didn't think of that until after I created these pieces, but it's true. Doesn't it take a little bit of bravery to let yourself wonder and marvel at the beautiful amazing things in this world? Are we afraid that we'll be disappointed or let down? Afraid that we'll lose something? I have been there.
As a mother who can bear no more children of my own, I'm sometimes afraid to let myself wonder what my life would be like if one day we could adopt. I'm afraid to let myself wonder at the possibility. I'm afraid of it not happening, so I don't let myself hope for that. I guess my next watercolor lettering piece should be hope!
