I heard a man, a cowboy, a friend’s husband say the following…”I am at perfect peace.” He was referring to his choice to have hospice care in his home.

What I also wish I could describe to you is his demeanor.  There was peace and contentment.  Even a security that reached so far in to his soul.

I felt he was looking right through me and was I ever paying attention!

I’d like to live life now with that kind of attitude!  Kudos to contentment!
