"He who is contented is rich," Lao Tzu

Contentment. It seems that is an elusive thing for people in some stages of dementia. What are some ways to foster contentment? Music is a great one. I play nostalgic music often to create contentment. Yesterday we had a delicious dinner. Then we watched a movie from some decades ago. And then we sat outside to enjoy a meteor shower. Activities that bring contentment to us both. Sometimes contentment is achieved by my simply avoiding an argument or upset. We are rich indeed.
