Mrs Darling has a point

This excerpt is from today's post on this blog post on Art Nest. Great quote and thoughtful sentiment...

"One of my favorite quotes that keeps me going when I'm scared is from Peter Pan. Mrs. Darling is explaining to her children about sacrifices that parents and adults make...

Mrs. Darling: There are many different kinds of bravery. There's the bravery of thinking of others before one's self. Now, your father has never brandished a sword nor fired a pistol, thank heavens. But he has made many sacrifices for his family, and put away many dreams.
Michael: Where did he put them?
Mrs. Darling: He put them in a drawer. And sometimes, late at night, we take them out and admire them. But it gets harder and harder to close the drawer... He does. And that is why he is brave.

Don't you ever lay in bed wide awake and visit all of your dreams? I do. Then I hear the little foot steps running down the hall and I remember where I'm supposed to be and that it is where I want to be. "
