Nora looks at her work this morning. There is much to do. She thinks, "It's too much for me."

No, Nora. It's too much for one day, but it's not too much for one life. Make a plan. It will take days. It might take years, but you can do this. At the moment, you cannot see the end. Keep your course, and you will see it. You'll get there.
