On the Eleventh Day of Christmas, my true love gave to me…a rearview mirror.
Some reading this may not know what the title means, and to that I say, Google it. I love music. My friends will tell you, when they get in my car, they don’t know what sound is going to come out of the speakers. One of my favorite groups is Rascal Flatts. They have a song, Broken Road. The song is a poignant look at the road traveled and the road not traveled and how he (Gary) is so thankful to God that every moment he missed, every broken road that he went down, led him right to where he is now. How sweet is that? That despite all the holes and ditches he probably had to maneuver around, he recognizes the value of the plan God had for him and the road he had to take. Hindsight is better than 20/20, 1080pi HDTV, even Coca Cola. Hindsight often hangs with the SWC crew and while they are cool, nobody likes them hanging around for long. All hindsight is, is reflection and we learned that with reflection, sometimes forgiveness is needed and then focus forward (Tenth Day of Christmas). Plenty of times I’ve thought about things after the fact but let’s be real, NOBODY likes a Monday Morning Quarterback
I set out on a narrow way many years ago
Hoping I would find true love along the broken road
But I got lost a time or two
Wiped my brow and kept pushing through
I couldn’t see how every sign pointed straight to you
