Get to vs. Have To

I’m so grateful today:

I got to wake up.

I get to breathe.

I got to play with my dogs.

I got to worship.

I got to pray (especially for my friend who hates me and thinks I’m the most terrible person made, yes…I prayed for you today.)

I get to drive a car.

I get to live in a time of TV, Internet, and Ice-cream.

I get to write a blog post.

I get to be alive in this time of freedom, and prosperity..tenuous as it is.  

I get to clean my house.

I get to cook for my family.

I get to be here.  

I get to help people!  Even if I don’t get credit, I get the joy of it!

I get to give blood, for free till July 6th anyway.

I get to help my neighbors.

I get to be a friend.

I get to express my opinion, even when it pisses people off.  But that’s kinda fun…I’m not sorry about that, pissing people off… or for expressing my opinions.  I will express my opinions, like them or not.  Your response is not my responsibility.

I get to be here, and it’s all good.

Aren’t you glad that we live in a time of ‘get to’ instead of ‘have to’?  

It makes you smile, yea.
