There are many things in life that are unfair, even cruel but yet we are expected to pick up the pieces and FIND a way to make those pieces fit together even if they are pieces from two very different jig-saw puzzles. Sometimes the best thing we can do is let the pieces lie together in whatever fashion they can even if that means leaving gaps and holes where the edges don’t quite fit.
Sometimes, no matter how badly the heart wants to mend a crack in the foundation of life, it’s just meant to be a wrinkle in the blanket of your story sewn by the needle of a machine much stronger than your determination can overpower.
We’ve all heard it before and will hear it many more times throughout our lives but life is too short; too short to spend time trying to iron out a wrinkle that’s just not meant to be flat. Persistence is often the key but sometimes persistence is the key to our weakness rather than our strength. It takes a strong person to know when someone or something is no longer worth the effort. When the wrinkle is just a part of their blanket.
It’s not giving up or giving in its realizing your time, your energy, your support and affection could be better appreciated in a different quilt.
I’m not quite there yet; I’m still trying to make two piece lie together with holes and gaps, waiting for someone or something to come along and shave the edges so things align how I want them to. For now, this particular jig-saw puzzle is a little wobbly, a little fragile, a little broken.
