My friend Katy wrote this morning about a FaceTime conversation with her granddaughter, Juniper. (Let’s just take a moment to acknowledge how darling that name is. And from what I’ve seen in photos, Juniper’s blue-eyed, freckled cuteness is edible.)

Juniper was working on her Valentines, and she showed them off to her grandparents via face-to-face technology. Katy said, “Juni, you inspire me. I’ve always wanted to paint like you do. I even went to the craft supply store, and I bought papers and brushes and paints to give it a try. But I haven’t done it yet, because I’m just not brave enough.”

Juniper’s reply is priceless to me..

“You don’t have to be brave. You just have to be excited.”
