I quickly went to childhood memories of wishbones: the anticipation of holding one side, not knowing if I'd break off the big part and "win" or get the little part and "lose." Sometimes I'd keep the wishbone for months before breaking it.
Wishbones are also a symbol of hope. At least before they're broken.
