Recently, I purchased a puzzle and set it out on my dining room table. I'm not much of a puzzler, as they tend to frustrate me, rather than relax me. I know, though, that both of my college age girls enjoy them So, now whenever they are home (neither one lives at home), they sit at the dining room table to work on the puzzle, allowing us extra time for chatting and catching up! When I sat with my daughter, Sarah (not pictured),as she worked on the puzzle, my mind began to brainstorm words and phrases that eventually became my poem below.
