Here on Sunday Stills this week the topic is ‘Thankful‘.

In the UK we don’t have Thanksgiving Day, and I am not at all religious. Therefore I’ll add a few photos to show what I am thankful for.

First of course is my family. I am thankful for all the people seen sitting here below with Sam and I who make up our immediate and extended family. There’s another one to add, our little grandson Luca, but he wasn’t born back in May 2019 when this photo was taken.

Secondly I am thankful for my health, having survived stage 4 advanced thyroid cancer. I am thankful at age 63 to still be able to climb the steep hill up to the Tennyson Monument at Freshwater, Isle of Wight, and to cycle about at home in Suffolk around the country lanes.

I’m also thankful that I still have a job, and that my eyesight hasn’t deteriorated to the point where I cannot go out to work or write my stories.

What are you thankful for?
