contentment

Finding contentment

For me, finding contentment is all about appreciating the little things in life.
It's watching my children play, healthy and happy.
It's enjoying my home and beautiful garden.
It's spending time with close family and friends.
It's having food on the table, clothes on our back, and knowing that we have what we need.
It's enjoying my husband's company and friendship.
It's beginning to understand myself and learning my own mind, relying on and worrying less about other's opinions of me.
It's taking a moment to watch the sunset, and appreciating God's incredible creation and the immense beauty of it.
It's knowing that I am loved, not because of what I do or don't do, but because of who Jesus is.
It's about always being incredibly thankful for all of these things.
I am so thankful for these incredible blessings in my life.
Every single day.
And I think.. perhaps.. it is in the being thankful that you find contentment.
