Two weeks from today I go back to work after a wonderful summer of travel, swim lessons and having lots of fun in general. (Oh, and I learned to love coffee!) I appreciate summers more now than I did last year. It's such a nice time to get caught up on appointments, projects around the house (which we still haven't moved in to) and sleep really late..like 7:30 a.m.!
But still, I'm excited. I love the beginning of a new school year. It's such an amazing opportunity every August to start over. No matter how good or bad the previous year turned out, you get a chance to change it all three months later. It's the same thing I love about each new day. Even if the girls and I had a BAD day before, we can all wake up with new attitudes and decide to have a day filled with joy instead of angst, love instead of torturing your older sister....ahh I hear the screams of frustration coming from the other side of the apartment. Only 23 hours until the next new day starts. Thank the Lord.
