Life Through a Rear View Mirror

I never thought I would be a single mom. I wanted Little House on the Prairie. You know, Ma and Pa working through the hardships of life with their children close at hand and everything always made sense by the end of the show.
 I couldn't tell you when the channel of my life changed, only that it changed. And you know what? I am okay with that. I really am. I couldn't have said that a year ago but all the bitterness and anger has been washed away and I am content. I have heard it said that hindsight is 20/20. But I say hindsight is like looking into the rear view mirror. The perspective is different but you still still don't see the whole picture.
