Thankfulness in Nature

Thankfulness in Nature

Another of my words for this year - thankful. I find it easiest to feel thankful when I'm out in nature. I'm able to relax and feel connected to all the beauty around me, whether it's under trees or walking on 'our' beach here in Margate, UK. I intend to do more walking and being more thankful!
