Tuesdays Unwrapped - Contentment
November is the month many people (at least Americans) focus on being thankful as Thanksgiving stands out on the calendar. Handprint turkeys, pumpkin pie anticipation, over-the-river-and-through-the-woods-to-grandmother's-house-we-go, all cause many of us to make our thankful list to share at the table on Turkey Thursday.
Yet looming in my head is something related to thankfulness - contentment - and Alicia Chole's question, "When is enough, enough?" and definition, "Contentment - everything you long for is contained in what you actually have."
So what do I have today, wrapped up and contained in these four walls of my house or the four chambers of my heart, that I have longed for?
