My wife finally completed another 1000 piece jigsaw puzzle. She thinks this one is one of the two most difficult puzzles she has ever completed and she almost gave up when she started it. The colors are rather drab and similar but the final picture is quite amazing. My wife wonders if she is accomplishing anything by working on these puzzles and I tell her she is exemplifying perseverance and that puzzling takes her mind away from her various chronic pains and aches. In fact, I was reading in a WebMD piece on pain management today that working on crossword puzzles and, I assume jigsaw puzzles, can help alleviate pain. At any rate, I am extremely proud of her for finishing this difficult puzzle. The hard part is to take it apart after spending a couple of months off and on working on it. But at least she has this photo to remind her of it and she has a nice puzzle of the Twelve Days of Christmas that she intended to do before Christmas but which I assume she will work on next.
