I am sorry with the delay in sending you the poem that I mentioned, I have been busy staining my fences and hut, but I will definitely send you it my sweet friend 🙂
I need to start calling into your Space more, I am missing a lot of your postings 😦 I will try and catch up with you soon my dear friend 🙂
Have fun this evening Penny 😉
Hi Andro, a really busy time for me too, so no worries dear friend, I haven’t been visiting much either and hope to rectify that soon also, take care, stay well and be happy in the process! 🙂 xx
I will certainly try to be, and you too my sweet friend 🙂 😉
Contentment is such a simple concept, strangely and sadly, some people never seem to reach this state of being. I see it in younger people maybe, because they can’t seem to just be. They have to be doing and they need to be entertained: watching TV, texting, chatting, always moving about and wanting more. Not understanding, if they would just consider the concept, they might find contentment with who they are, what they have, where they are, etc. Some people don’t know what to do with themselves when, on an odd occasion, they find themselves alone. Great post. Enjoyed it!
Hi Sheila, thank you. All that you say here so very true, sadly, I might add! I am gladly you enjoyed my words, however!
Thank you dear friend! xx
True, true, true!

Absolutely true! 🙂
Hi Penny, contentment is such an important state to foster. It is usually in opposition to the ‘have it all and go-getting culture’ that is often around us. Happiness relies so much on deep-seated inner contentment. I completely agree with you, it is all about our choices, which largely depend on what we value. Much love to you, great post! xx
