They stood side by side, each looking for the pieces with faces on them and as they worked together, putting the pieces in their right places, a sense of satisfaction filled the air. “We make a great team,” he exclaimed every time she handed him the piece to fill the right spot. She smiled…inwardly and outwardly.
Thanks for joining us for Wednesday’s Word with Kim-Evinda and Trench Classes United. Today’s blog is a great reminder that in life, and especially in and with relationships, there needs to be a framework of sorts that holds the relationship(s) together.
The puzzle was titled “Music” and had at least 200 famous musicians captured within the 1000 pieces. He had already had the frame completed when she came over for their doggie-play date, and he had started filling it in here and there.
Immediately she realized while the “filling in” was probably the hardest, it was made easier because the frame was already intact. Her theory proved true as they added to its picture, piece by piece, high fiving each other for their finds.
It wasn’t until the next morning when she was sitting in her quiet time thinking of their time spent that the analogy hit her like a bucket of refreshing water. Any worthwhile relationship required a framework, a foundation if you will, to build upon. To try and put the pieces of a relationship together before that is established is setting the relationship up for unnecessary challenges. That’s not to say that because of the framework being built first that there won’t be challenges, but with a strong frame built, it can stand the test of time as the pieces join the puzzle and the frame holds it together.
