Little Fish, Big Pond

IMG_1143.JPG

["Little Fish, Big Pond" 24x24, available] I sent my three little ducks off to school this morning, each with their own set of worries... I miss mom too much during the day, I'm nervous about my spelling test, I have no one to sit by at lunch. Sometimes the world seems so big, the problems so insurmountable, and we feel so small and helpless facing them. Sometimes I feel so small watching my children march off to face it all, I just want to pull them back to the safety of the nest. But we're better for stretching ourselves-- all of us. We're better for swimming off, heads high, into the big pond and being brave enough to believe that we can come off victorious in whatever it is we're trying. And more often than not, we do. Keep swimming, little fish (and big fish), the pond is yours.
