Contentment – a deeper expression of happiness.
10th August 2016

I have just got off the phone with friend and she had asked me how I was. I replied that I felt very contented and as I said that word I felt a very deep peaceful feeling.  Contentment is key. It reminded me of a conversation I had had with a friend over 25 years … Continued

Beyond Imagination!
19th July 2016
