Had to vs. Get to

This morning I "had to":

bake and frost cupcakes

review the area of a circle with a reluctant 12 year old

assist my daughter in the construction of a get well card for my dad (minor surgery today)

wash 1001 dishes

and figure out how to pay a bill that we had put off.

A phone call can alter everything....

This afternoon, I am remembering how lucky I am to be ABLE TO

be with my kids all day long

breathe in and out without any pain

live for the moment right here, right now.

My dad is recovering and everything is looking good but someone very special to us is having tests and procedures. I am pausing in everything I've considered important lately...
