This Big Puzzle Called Life


Judging by the posts on Facebook, I am not the only one breaking out a jigsaw puzzle to help pass the stay-home-and-stay-safe time.  As I worked on puzzle #2, I realized a few things.

In life, I sometimes try to fit pieces in where they don’t belong, but they might seemed right at the time.

In life, it is hard to see the big picture, one small piece at a time.

In life, there are a limited number of straight edges; all the rest have nooks and crannies.

In life, we sometimes miss a piece and we feel unfinished.

Maybe a special person in your life died.  Maybe a relationship, or your job, or your car died.  You might be missing one or more pieces to the big puzzle called life.  It is still a beautiful picture and the pieces were worth the time it took to match up.  Take time to savor this sometimes-complicated-not-all-straight-edges life.
