Content – mentally or emotionally satisfied with things as they are
Contentment is the experience of satisfaction and being at ease in one’s situation
Contentment – happiness with one’s situation in life
Contentment – accepting one’s situation or life with equanimity and satisfaction
I gleaned these definitions from the web
‘cose I wasn’t too sure what contentment really meant
Someone asked me the other day how my Aunt was
I said “oh she seems contented in her own way’
Then my friend said
‘Cathy, you tell me she gets lost trying to talk, she stays silent most of the time
or and this is not derogatory in any manner
just mutters lots of ‘gobbledegook’ (my friends words)
which none of you understand
so how do you know she is content’
That set me off thinking
She hasn’t been agititated at all recently  
so I assumed she was content
but as she never says anything intelligible
how do I know if she is happy or satisfied with the way things are?
Alzheimers is a bugger of a disease!!!
BUT
Can you just see the contentment oozing out of my Kiera
as she enjoys the early morning sunshine
we had here Monday morning
Don’t know if contentment oozes out of people
but to me she really does have a contented look on her face
Look at the way
she’s almost breathing in the warmth
and
as far as I’m concerned
Cats and sunshine go together
They are made for each other
to really enjoy them you need to click on the photos 
I am beginning to think
(not for the first time either)
that in a former life I may have been a cat
‘Cose Catherine and and a love of sunshine
go together as well lol
