Pushing the "Do-Over" button

It's not common in life that you are offered the chance for a "do-over" but tomorrow, I get my turn.

It's back to the grind, back to the books, back to class, back to student life. 

Tomorrow, I will step back onto the path that I strayed far away from four years ago.   I will plant my feet firmly on the ground and begin, again.

It's my turn to pick up and finish what I started.  The road has been the longest and the most difficult and I promise to never take it for granted and always work my hardest to be the best that I know how.

Such a turning point for our family tomorrow and I couldn't be more excited.  Kinley starts her day care experience (please God, let her feel safe and secure), I start back with the Chicago commuters (please God, keep me safe) and I walk back into that classroom ready to finish what I started (please God, give me the courage to continue on).

I'm scared, nervous, excited and happy all at the same time.  Wish me luck and say a prayer for me (and Kinley Grace).

I can't wait to update everyone of my first day back!  I'll be like a giddy little 5 year old coming home from Kindergarten.

Joy, you will do great! Kinley will love daycare and have so much fun playing with the other kids. She will be proud of you for finishing what you started years ago. Can't wait to see your post tonight about your first day back! Good Luck and prayers have been sent your way.
