The word 'contentment' popped up on my calendar last Friday. It's not a word I hear much but seeing it certainly made me pause and think about my state of contentment.
Years ago I remember the word 'contented' being used to describe cows but, for the life of me, could not remember in what context. Sooooo a Google search was in order...contented cows give better milk, there's a bar called The Contented Cow in Northfield, MN, and it was the Carnation company from which I first heard the term 'contented cow.' Thank you Google!

So, are you content? I believe I am. Some days I'm more content than others but, for the most part, I'd consider myself content. The calendar page says to sit down and say the word and see what happens...you just might have a physical response. OK, ready? Say the word. Feel anything? Pretty powerful for a word you don't hear much.
