There is a little saying that my wife Madonna taught me. I try to remember it quite often. 
It says, "Contentment is not the fulfillment of what I want but rather the realization 
of what I already have." Each day that I wake up, on the green side of the grass, 
as I like to say, is a good day. If I can just be grateful I will know contentment and peace.
