Have you ever done puzzles? If you haven’t, you probably have. Relationships are puzzling. We try to put them together. We try to make them pretty. We try to make them whole! It’s hard. And as if “pretty” and “whole” isn’t challenging enough, sometimes, maybe more, but sometimes, there’s just a missing part. Oh, that empty space. It can seem like the Grand Canyon! We anguish to fill it in, desperate to make it work, and we search for what is missing, but it just can’t be found. The more we anguish, the more we try, and the more we search, that missing part, that final piece to completion is simply not there. It’s a crucial realization. It’s a critical juncture. All relationships have a missing part, or two, or more. This is where love “kicks in”. Your love is either big enough to fill the void, or it’s not, but no matter where you’re at, it’s always good enough. Sometimes the puzzle just doesn’t work out. Sometimes a part is missing and you’re not big enough, yet, to handle it. It’s all right. The next step, always, is to grow in your capacity to love. Don’t worry about the puzzle. It will work itself out, or it won’t. In the final analysis, the puzzle with its missing part is not the issue. With or without the puzzle, love is. Keep growing in love, regardless of the puzzle’s fate. There will always be more puzzles. The question is, will you have more love to deal with the next one, and that inevitable missing part?
