Photos by kids

Makayla Hayes, 14, won the international grand prize in the 2011 National Geographic Kids photo contest for this



Judges sifted through more than 12,000 images submitted by kids in the United States and Canada, Bulgaria, Egypt, Hungary, Indonesia, Lithuania, Slovenia, South Africa, Turkey, and the United Kingdom. Winners were chosen from each region, but the international grand prize went to 14-year-old Makayla Hayes of Marion, Illinois, for her eerie underwater self-portrait.

A Thankful heart is always close to the riches of the universe

Be thankful Gods answers are wiser than your answers

Leaving yesterdays troubles behind me & being thankful for the gift of today

Let us be grateful to people who make us happy, they are the gardeners who make our souls blossom

Be Thankful for the fact that you’re alive and that you have another day to enjoy life to its fullest!

Thanking God for letting me see another day on this beautiful Earth, because another day is not promised

Let us serve the world soulfully. The pay we will receive for our service will be in the currency of gratitude. God’s gratitude.

Being truly thankful makes you infinitely more resourceful. By sincerely appreciating what you have you find new and valuable ways to make use of it

Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.

Being thankful for the little things, gives you grace to overcome the bigger ones

Gratitude, being thankful for the  things we’ve been given, even when its hard

Nothing has turned out as we expected!  It never does. Life’s under no obligation to give us what we expect. We take what we get and are thankful it’s no worse than it is.


Silence is the genius of fools and one of the virtues of the wise.


Still waters run deep

silence is wonderful to listen to.

Silence can be of sufficient praise

The tree of silence bears the fruit of peace.

Silence is golden. Talk is cheap!

 Silence is a secret weapon that few can master because the noise of the world is more appealing.

The most profound statements are often said in silence since Silence is also speech

Silence and reserve will give anyone a reputation for wisdom.

Silence is a fence around wisdom
