Scared to return back to the workforce

When I left the workforce, I worked my way up the management chain in retail. When we decided to start our family (husband and I), I wanted to remain home until my youngest goes to school full-time. Well I have about 1.5 years left. This will mean that I be out of the workforce for 8 years. I did go back to school. I have my education behind my name. I also have 10 years of management but its about 8 years prior. I know that is a scary thing for a employer. Especially in times like this. The economy is so shaky.

I have worked part time in the time that I have been a Full time mom. Working per say doesn't scare me. I am actually ready to go back to work but the getting the job scared the heck out of me. I know mothers do it all the time. I also know that returning back to work can be a difficult task. I pulled out my resume. I added my education. Now what??

Yeah, I do have year and a half to go but wow! This is actually scary. Before I go back to a paying job, I decided to volunteer with the Army. They offer many jobs in office setting on a volunteer basis. Well they give you free child care in return. I think that would be a great opportunity to brush up on some of my skills and also allow me to add some updated work experience.

Please forgive me for babbling. I dont know why I am so nervous but I am. Like always I decided to type this fear out. I am a strong believer that if you are worried or depressed about anything, write it down. Pray on it and let it go. For after that you are allowing God to take control. So here goes. God guide me through this. I trust you and I know you will guide me to the right path.
