I Get To

I get to wake up early every morning to get my family ready for the day.

I get to make breakfast and prepare lunch all while trying to get the kids shoes on and teeth brushed.

I get to drive my kids 25 minutes to school every day.

I get to hustle and bustle to feed and care for the animals.

I get to clean up everyone’s messes and ickys.

I get to fold unending mounds of laundry everyday and put them away.

I get to go to the grocery store and pay bills and then tightly manage our money until the next payday.

I get to go sit in a long pick up line and then drive the long drive back home.

I get to sit at the table and stress over homework, cook supper, then rush out the door for practice.

I get to make sure the kids are bathed and ready for bed, then go back and forth for night kisses 1,000 times.

I get to stay up late to clean up supper and clean the kitchen.

Everyone’s get to’s are different. Your get to’s may not seem so glamours to you, but they are someone else’s want to’s. Let’s be more thankful and love our get to’s and not make them have to’s.
