Today is Pioneer Day in Utah. I have always loved this holiday. I am very proud of my pioneer heritage!(although I wouldn't have lasted even a day out on the plains!)
I am encouraging you all to watch "Legacy". (available for $3.50 through The Church Of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints distribution center here.) It is a very poignient story of the Mormon pioneers, and what they went through to escape persecution and reach a place of safety and freedom.
Thinking about how strong those pioneers were helps me get through the de-junking of my basement. If they could haul their entire life's belongings across hundreds of miles of prairie land, being persecuted along the way, then I can clean out the junk from my basement with a whiney child at my elbow.
