A little perspective for the day

I can glance around my home right now and feel like there is so much to do, I don't know where to start. I can glance at my calendar and feel overwhelmed. I can glance outside and see the weeds that need pulling and the car that needs washing. I can fully recognize a whole cloud of problems and loose ends in my life right now. And, I can also remember that this life is short. My troubles are momentary (more on momentary troubles later, which was the topic of the eulogy I gave at my grandma's funeral a few weeks ago). If you've felt overwhelmed today, here is some required viewing, one of my favorite songs right now called "I Will Rise." It's so super good. It's like a vitamin for my soul, giving me the boost I need to pursue the ordinary - the laundry, the homework, the weeds - with joy.
