Gratitude Story from Panama, Panama

If you wanted to send a thank-you note to someone in your life, who would it be? “ I’m very grateful for everything my girlfriend has done for me. She’s the person who knows me better than anyone in the world, the person who understands me more than anyone. She’s the only one who puts up with all my silly stuff, the one who always makes me laugh. She’s my best friend. My best memory with her, or at least my favorite, was when I came back from a trip away from home. I had been away for a long time, and I missed her a lot.  With the help of her mom, I managed to surprise her when I came back, and I gave her a present. The best thing was seeing her that day, the way her face lit up with happiness when she saw me and spending the whole afternoon talking to her. It’s not a memory out of the ordinary, but although it was simple, it was a very special moment for me.”(Panama, Panama) . . . . #panama#gratitud #gratitudeisthebestattitude #friends #girlfriend #thanksfriend #thanks #youaremysunshine

If you wanted to send a thank-you note to someone in your life, who would it be, and what is one of your best memories of that person? "I would like to send thanks to my daughter, who now lives in Chile, because she always helps me and is there for me. A good memory I have with her is when she was a little girl. On my birthday she gave me shoes. She showed me her love that way. This was an amazing gift because we had money problems at the time. The morning of my birthday, I had no idea she and her father were planning to give me a present. Since I like surprises, she decided to “hide” from me while laughing all around the house. It was then time for her to go to school. I spent the morning talking to friends and waiting for the family to arrive home. My daughter came home with a present in her hands. I couldn’t figure out what a little girl would get for me, but when I opened the wrap I saw the most beautiful shoes. They were a gift from my baby. Later, I found out my husband and daughter went shopping for a whole Saturday morning and that my daughter wanted to take all of the shoes home for me. After deciding for an hour, she finally picked those shoes. She said they were going to make me look like the prettiest mom in the world. During the rest of my birthday, I wore the shoes and told my daughter that I would wear them only on special occasions. Over the following months, she would supervise me while I dressed to make sure I wouldn’t wear those shoes unless it was a very special time. We would also pick what dresses would look the best with her present." (Bolivia).

If you wanted to send a thank-you note to someone in your life, who would it be, and what is one of your best memories of that person? My thank-you note would go to my older brother, Marko. We were very close when we lived together. My best memory about him is our vacation trip with our family at some sort of camp we didn't like very much. We were two kids with a lot of older people at a camp, and there wasn't much to do for fun. We spent time walking around and talking a lot about everything, but there was one conversation I clearly remember: It was about life in general, and his words were the following: "If we leave our town and split up on different sides, do not forget to follow your ideas and remember, no ice in the world can kill a true idea." Even today, I hear an echo of this sentiment, and it has supported me all these years.

If you wanted to send a thank-you note to someone in your life, who would it be, and what is one of your best memories of that person? "I think the person that I would write a thank-you note to would have to be my older brother. My older brother has always been an inspirational figure for me, and he's always been someone I could look up to. I like to think that my brother has helped me shape who I am today and has helped me find what I am most passionate about in life. One of my favorite memories with my brother is actually more of an ongoing tradition and memory that I hope will be able to continue. But anyway, we would stay up super-late at night, and we would just have deep talks about philosophy and art and analyze different old-time movies that we both loved. I would always enjoy these talks because my brother was so wise and because we would have actual conversations, which are pretty hard to have nowadays with other people because everyone lives their own separate lives. I found that my brother was always easy to talk and he was always so understanding. So I’ll just finish off by sending all my thanks and love to my amazing brother! Love you!” (Boston, Massachusetts) . . .  #gratitude #thanks #positivevibes #heartsign #storytelling #gratitudeisthebestattitude #kindnessmatters #inspiring  #digithanks #gratitudedaily #storyteller  #boston #massachusetts

If you wanted to send a thank-you note to someone in your life, who would it be, and what is one of your best memories of that person? “I want to say thank you to my father who is one of the most important people in my life. We have so many good memories together, but I want to share this one which is so precious to me. Just a few years ago, my father and I decided to go to the movies together. Even now, it seems like a normal event, but it was not usual for us, as we had never watched a movie together before. Honestly, I don't quite remember how we chose the movie, but its name was "The Pursuit of Happiness.” We didn’t know anything about its content; however, the movie was about a father who has lost his job, so he and his son had no place to sleep other than the street. The father had so much love for to his son and did everything to get out of this situation. During the movie, I was thinking that if this happened to us, my father would do the same for me. So the movie definitely took me in, and I was so emotional. In the following days, I was still under the spell of the movie. I am so grateful to my father for his existence in my life.” (Paris, France) . . . . #gratitude #thanks #positivevibes  #parentslove #motherlover  #heartsign #storytelling #gratitudeisthebestattitude #kindnessmatters #inspiring #parents #digithanks #gratitudedaily #storyteller  #france #paris

Gratitude Story from Plovdiv, Bulgaria

If you wanted to send a thank you note to someone in your life who would it be, and what is one of your best memories with that person? "I would send a thank you- note to my grandson Boris. I have so many memories with him and with my other grandchildren. Taking care of them was the best moments in my life. I remember how I used to take him to kindergarten every morning. He was so sleepy and moody; it was really hard to make him walk. So every morning I started to sing one song to help make him walk. The song was like this “Jump, jump little boy, jump, jump!” Every time I left him there in the kindergarten, he told me that I had to come and pick him up first, before any other child. And so I did, every afternoon. After kindergarten we went together for a walk and for some ice cream or other sweets. I was drinking coffee and he was eating ice cream. These were good memories from back then, but now I can tell you one from a few months ago. It was on Christmas Eve. It was the biggest surprise ever. The whole family was together at my daughter’s house as we don’t make celebrations at my house anymore because my husband is gone now. I don’t want anyone to miss him at the holidays. Holidays are for happiness. So we started to give each other presents and Boris told me that the my present is waiting at my home. At first I was shocked because I thought that he might give me a cat or a dog and I didn’t want a dog or cat. When I got home I was a bit scared what would be there. I was surprised to see a parrot.It was so beautiful and colorful. I was full of joy.  The Parrot and I are now living together and we keep each other’s company."

If you wanted to send a thank-you note to someone in your life, who would it be, and what is one of your best memories of that person? "Well, that would definitely be my friend Tanja, I've known her for about nine years; we met via common friends, a group of people who, at the time, were involved in all sorts of alternative medicine, spirituality, and that kind of knowledge. I was in high school back then. One time, I went to hang out with all of them, and she was there. We hit it off immediately: that same day we became close, and we're still great friends, even though we see each other less frequently these days.  Still, we often speak on the phone, and those are often very long talks. We went through a lot together and had a lot to deal with a lot over the years, so there were several rough patches between the two of us, but there was a time when we both matured and outgrew our egos on some important issues. I always remember our trip to Berlin, Germany. It was about eight years ago. My God, we were so incompatible when it came to life details. I was much younger back then, almost like an ''Energizer bunny'', and she was like a grown-up, wanting to take things slowly. We were royaly pissing each other off. Ha ha. We had our marathon long  talks about ourselves, self-discovery, and who knows what. We were both smoking back then, and I remember we almost lit the kitchen on fire.  Ha ha. Those were crazy days…" (Croatia) . . . #gratitude #thanks #friends #croatia #digithanks #inspiring #gratitudealways

If you wanted to send a thank-you note to someone in your life, who would it be, and what is one of your best memories of that person? Miguel: "Tania, thank you for everything you do for me. Thank you for every single effort you’ve made to see me happy and letting me be a part of your life. I love you. About a year ago, my girlfriend, Tania, and I heard the news that Aerosmith, one of our favorite bands, was coming to Bolivia. We started to do everything we could to get our hands on the tickets before they sold out. We managed to get great tickets and started to plan, as the concert was going to be performed in a city on the other side of the country. Once we took care of the details, we were ready to travel and witness one of the greatest bands in history. After a long wait, we were finally on our way to the bus station. Then we started hearing rumors of the concert being cancelled, but decided not to pay attention to them. We got on the bus, but about two hours later we heard from a reliable source that the concert had been officially canceled. At that moment we had two options. We could get off the bus at the next stop and go back to our city, throwing away the hotel reservation, or go all the way and pretend we never heard the bad news. After discussing the pros and cons, we made a decision. We were going all the way to have a small vacation. Eighteen hours later we had reached Santa Cruz, the city the concert was meant to be performed at. Once there we went to the hotel and checked in. We spent three amazing days in another city and away from our usual problems. We enjoyed different weather, different people and different experiences. Above all else, we enjoyed pleasant company."( Bolivia ) . . . #storytelling #gratitudeisthebestattitude #thanks #bolivia🇧🇴

Gratitude Story from Macedônia

If you wanted to send a thank-you note to someone in your life, who would it be, and what is one of your best memories of that person?"Um, where should I start with my thanks? 😀 Thanks to my loving family who have been supportive throughout my entire life.  My dad was always a fan of tough love, but that has helped me become the person I am today. I’m thankful that I have a loving and supportive girlfriend, Ana, by my side; we’ve been together for nearly four years now, and I hope that our love will be long and lasting for my entire life. I’ve been a part of the NGO world for nearly seven years, and I consider myself to be a part of the change that makes my country better for younger people. I’m thankful that I was given the chance to be a part of it by my friend Kristijan, who took a risk by hiring me and molded me into the worker I am today. It’s never about the money; it’s always about trying to be a better person and helping those in need ."
