PUZZLE PIECES


THROUGH LAUGHTER OR TEARS, IN JOY OR IN STRIFE

WE'RE A PIECE OF THE PUZZLE IN SOMEONE ELSE'S LIFE.


EACH PIECE OF THE PUZZLE IS UNIQUE AND CAN'T BE FORCED INTO PLACE. 

BUT WE CAN ALL FIT COMFORTABLY IF GIVEN THE SPACE.


WE ALL FIT TOGETHER AND CAN BECOME PERFECTLY NEAT

EACH PIECE IS IMPORTANT TO MAKE THE PICTURE COMPLETE.


THE MASTER GARDENER'S PLAN IS FOR ALL TO LEARN AND TO GROW 

A RESPONSIBILITY FOR US TO SHARE WHAT WE KNOW.


WE CAN PLANT SEEDS OF KNOWLEDGE AND TEND WITH CARE

THEN GLEAN THE HARVEST OF MORE MEMBERS TO SHARE.


EVEN THOUGH WE'RE DIFFERENT WE BELONG, YOU AND ME

TO THIS SAME ORGANIZATION OF NGC.


EIGHT REGIONS, FIFTY STATES WITH MEMBERS IN ALL

EACH PART OF THE PUZZLE, SOME BIG AND SOME SMALL


COMMUNICATION IS THE KEY TO SUCCESS

QUESTIONS MUST BE ANSWERED FOR US TO PROGRESS


SO WHEN LIFE GETS PUZZLING; AND WE'RE NOT SURE OF THE FUTURE

LET'S TURN TO EACH OTHER FOR GUIDANCE AND NURTURE.


THEN REMEMBER IN TIMES OF HAPPINESS OR TIMES OF STRIFE

WE ARE ALL PIECES OF THE PUZZLE IN ONE ANOTHER'S LIFE.
