Contentment

The best things in life are nearest~
Breath in your nostrils
Light in your eyes
Flowers at your feet
Duties at your hand
The path of right just before you.

Then do not grasp at the stars
but do life's plain, common work as it comes,
certain that daily duties and daily bread are the sweetest things in life.
~Robert Louis Stevenson

To be content in all circumstances is a gift.

Love the light in this one - accentuates the contentment in the scene - lovely.

Hope you're able to find contentment in all you're going through, knowing who is looking after you, and Shauna.
