A Piece of the Puzzle

A teacher friend of mine had this posted on her social media page. “You are part of a puzzle in someone else’s life.  You may never know where you fit.  But someone’s life may never be complete without you in it.” (Bonnie Arbor)  I often reflect on those that come in and out of our lives, and to what extent they were involved in certain situations or time frames throughout our lifetime.  Some memories make us smile, others we learn lessons from, yet each person we encounter has left some sort of mark.  On the other hand, we too are those puzzle pieces that help form the existence of others.  I’m sure we all can think of a time when we have run into a person on the street or in a supermarket, at the gas station and such, where we have an almost “déjà vu” moment.  That feeling that we have met them some other time or place in our past.  Or we have been told we look “just like” another individual, our “twin” if you will.  Those little things that you do for others, the selfless acts of kindness, the random good deeds without giving it a second thought, may have created moments of joy for others and in turn, have given them a sense of completeness.  We may never know where we fit, but each and every one of us brings special meaning to life.
