What makes you thankful? Thankful Thoughts in pictures and words.

Sunday Stills – Thankful

This week Terri’s prompt for Sunday Stills Photo Challenge is Thankful

I’ve created an acrostic poem using photos and words – enjoy!

T is for TREES

H is for HEALTH

A is for AGE

N is for NATURE


F is for FAMILY


L is for LOVE

Thankful = Trees, Health, Age, Nature, Kindness, Family, Unemployed, Love

These are all photos from my image library from over my years of blogging.  It was very hard at times, finding the right photo for the words, but I’m happy with my collection of Thankful Thoughts.  These are all things that are very special to me.

Feel free to leave a comment below. What’s your favourite photo from my selection of Thankful Thoughts?  What are you thankful for?

I always love hearing from you!

    Loved them all Deb – especially the ones of you and your husband – and the extended family. It always comes back to family for me too xx

      Thanks so much Leanne – there was no question that F would be for Family! I agree it’s all about family for me too.

        I read through it again Deb – this time to appreciate the acrostic component – and I loved it even more x
        MLSTL and I’ve shared on my SM 🙂

      Thanks so much Donna! We don’t ‘do’ Thanksgiving here in Australia so this is my take on it – I think I have the gist of it 🙂

    What a clever idea to share your thanks for Sunday stills, Debbie! A round up of meaningful images expresses gratitude for all you have is wonderful!

      Thanks so much Cherie! I wanted to do something a bit different and was happy with the format although ‘U’ had me stuck for a while 🙂

    This is really wonderful and unique. I loved your love pic and the 57 years bold pics the most!


    • November 19, 2018 at 9:11 pm

      Thanks so much Rachna, I’m so pleased to hear that. I could have used Unique for the letter U as it really had me stumped for ages. Yes my 57 years bold shirt only has . a few more weeks of life in it, before my birthday. Maybe I can get away with it for a while longer 🙂

    I love the work tip image 😄 And right now I’m thankful I’ve just done the weekly shop and it was quiet at Lidl – hate it when it’s busy!

      Yes that one really appealed to me at the time I was finishing up at work too! I understand the quiet shopping time, it makes such a difference to the whole experience. Thanks for your visit.

    So many wonderful photos Deb, hard to choose just one. Love your wedding and family shots, I think in the end it’s those special memories that stand out. So much to be thankful for, so blessed. Stay that way. A lovely post. xx

      Thank you Miriam, it was fun putting words to the letters and then finding photos. I get creative ideas but sometimes don’t know if they work out that well, I’m quite happy with this one I must say! And yes I am blessed 🙂

    Wonderful photos, Deb. I love the sunflowers, since we won’t be seeing any of them for a few months. I’m thankful for my health and family. Where would I be without them? #MLSTL

    I love the photo gratitude list! And I am intrigued by “U.” I taught in public schools in the US for 15 years…and that career did not end happily. The end of that career was the theme of my gratitude list this year, because it has led to a better place for me as well. I look forward to reading about more of your adventures! I have added you to my reading list! #mlstl

      That’s so good to hear Bethany! I, (along with many other dedicated teachers), was made redundant after 20+ years of teaching in a men’s correctional centre (Jail). It really hurt at the time but now I’m happily retired (at very young age) and loving life. I’m sorry to hear your career didn’t end happily either. I’ll go and find your post, I’m sure we have much in common. Thanks again for stopping by!

    Lovely collection of photos that fit so well into your theme. I love to see old family photos, even though I don’t actually know the people. It’s like peeking into a family’s history, in a good way! #MLSTL

      Yes I know what you mean Candi, getting to peek inside someone else’s life can be fun at times. I love these old family shots and reminiscing on days gone by! Thanks for your lovely comment.

      That’s a great idea to share in the FB group next week, as long as a link to my post is allowed? I love trying creative ideas out and this one was fun. We are truly blessed I agree and I try not to take it for granted. Thanks for your comment and the opportunity to share.

      Thanks Denyse! Unemployed was one of the only things I could think of at the time. I am a bit cheeky 🙂
