have to, get to

The other day I looked in the mirror and lamented that I have to dye my hair. Thursday, a day off from my little guy, I woke and said…I have to take a walk today. I regularly have to make dinner, and in this month of daily Thankful Swoons, I have said I have to Swoon…more than once.

I need to change them all to GETs. I get to do these things.

One of the things on my list today is the wake for my friend Fran. Fran and I used to joke about how often we both had to dye our hair. We would assure each other that the gray looked good and then agree we liked not only the color, but the texture of our curls when dyed. I will now embrace getting to to do this chore…and I will kiss the sky each time I do it.

On this day, even though my heart is a bit heavy…I am thankful I get to Swoon. I wish you a day of good “gets”…I wish you peace.
