This is contentment

I receive an Amazon gift card yesterday. It was a complete surprise and very much appreciated. I immediately started thinking about how to use it. I tried to think of anything we needed. I tried to think of something we wanted. I came up blank. I realized that this is what contentment feels like.

We have a nice home, healthy lives, plenty of food, lots of ways to keep ourselves busy, wonderful family and long-time friends. I'm not saying it's perfect, but it's a really, really, really good life. I think too often that we move from place to place without appreciating how good our life is an any moment. Not being able to think of anything to purchase yesterday might have been the best gift ever.
