Did it have anything to do with bills being paid,

the temporary distraction of some soothing music,

Synonyms of contentment are said to be

such things as emotional and physical satisfaction and happiness.

The wisest among us have learned "to be content in all things",

Piecing together good stretches of contentment

may just be the best we can aspire to... this side of Heaven.
