Each piece is unique in shape,
form, size, design, and coloring.
Each piece is valuable
and needed in completing the whole.
Connected by the Master's hand,
together they make a beautiful picture.

There are many, many pieces
to the picture that is my life.
Each piece is significant
and an important part of the whole.
I treasure each piece as a unique gift to me,
given to complete me.

This individual piece of a puzzle is given
to remind you always that you are special to me!
If one piece is missing
the picture that is me,
is not complete and looses its value.
Your gifts to my life cannot be overstated
or too greatly respected.

You are precious!
God knows why He connected all the pieces!
He alone knows the end result.

As I count my blessings, I count you twice!
I have so much for which to be thankful!
My FATHER, my faith, my family, my friends!
