Jigsaw Puzzle

Image of puzzle pieces washed up on a beach.When someone said, I saw your husband eating out with another woman, he said she’s a colleague, and I believed him; when someone said, I saw your husband holding hands, he said it wasn’t him, and I believed him; when someone said, I saw your husband in a baby store, he said now you’re just being irrational, talking like a crazy woman, and I believed him; when my husband said, We’re in love and she’s pregnant, I didn’t believe him until they said, I told you so, and my fingers fit the last two pieces of the jigsaw into place.
