Sept 3...how does content look like?

             This is a toughie. To me content looks like a sleeping baby, a child snuggled in a lap, the smile when a project is completed.  Content is a feeling that I have done my best, that when I look around I realize how lucky I truly am.  Content is family and friends.  Content can be just me and a good book.
Content can be elusive, the trick is to recognize and appreciate all the good surrounding us.

  5. Loved reading this, Abby! :) It is a tough one, but you sure seemed to do a great job. Elusive is a good word for it. There are so many ways to be in that place, and sometimes we don't know it until after the fact, for sure!

    I am enjoying reading these. Thank you for sharing. Many hugs,

    <3 Katie

  7. I agree that it's learning to appreciate all we have, and not striving for more! The grass isn't always greener!
    Love this Abby!

  8. If we could only remember that sometimes that grass may look greener, but that is because it has lots of crab grass...

  9. I love the association with the sleeping baby! To do your best and recognize that you have done the best you can is truly something to be content about, I wholeheartedly agree.
