I love a good puzzle!
I don't want 1000 pieces, 500 is plenty for me.
I don't want it all to be the same color either. I want lots of colors and a scene or image that brings me joy or peace.
Give me a cheesy movie, some warm pajamas, a cup of coffee or hot tea, and a day off work, and I can sit at a
puzzle table for hours. I love it even more when I'm sitting next to friends or family or if we each peck at
the puzzle over a few days. Collaboration at its best! I love the fact that we can all be looking at the
exact same pieces and patterns, but one person can "figure it out" when it has been right there
in front of us the entire time. I also love that there are no electronics involved!
Much like life, a puzzle teaches us that there are many ways to look at things. Patience is key.
And teamwork makes the dream work. All the cliches really "fit" into working a jigsaw puzzle. ☀️
This particular puzzle was SO hard to finish! All those Star Wars uniforms tended to blend together.
The kids started it with us
but towards the end, my dad and I were the only ones pushing through to the finish line.
Working puzzles with my dad hasbecome a favorite pastime for both of us.
We can chat, or work in silence. That time with him has been a gift.
