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? “If I were to thank someone, it would be friend of mine. He knows that I really appreciate what he has done for me because I have told him already, but why not to do it again? His name is Javi, I met him through common friends in Buenos Aires. He is from the south of Argentina, and he helped me to get the place where I´m living now. He and his boyfriend used to live in Buenos Aires, but they moved to Bariloche, Argentina, where they bought some land. Last year, I was desperately looking for an apartment. As a Colombian, I was struggling to find a place in Buenos Aires, and on top of that, I had to leave the place where I was living because it was far from my work place, which was the reason I was looking for closer place. One day we were talking, and he told me about their idea to move to Bariloche. I told him that I would rent their place if they offered me the chance. He said he would ask his boyfriend about it, and a few days later, he said it was all good. The best memory that I have with him and his boyfriend, happened two years ago when we rode around the city in a critical mass (many bike riders gathered together to go around the city), and it was SO MUCH fun.” (Berlin, Germany) . . . #gratitude #thanks #positivevibes  #heartsign #storytelling #gratitudeisthebestattitude #kindnessmatters #inspiring #digithanks #gratitudedaily #storyteller #macedonia #thanksfriend

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 a thank-you note to my “second parents,” Per and Karin from Norway, for all the support they provided to me during my studies there in 1971. Also, I would like to thank them for the most beautiful memories, the precious moments of a Christmas Eve spent with them and their three children at their home in the small town of Melbu on the island of Hadsel, one in which I received a lot of nice gifts and experienced their special way of celebrating this holiday, full of love and peace.They got together in their families and communities to have Christmas workshops to make cards, cakes, and decorations.  I am so glad that I was part of it. They were always willing to explain all their customs to me, and I always felt at home. I am looking forward to seeing them, their children and grandchildren next year here in Serbia."

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 have to thank my husband Daniel. He came into my life at a time of loneliness and gave me his support. He brought joy and new experiences into my life. He introduced me to a new world when he brought me with him to South Korea for his job at the embassy. He made me part of his family, and introduced me to his sons, who care for me. He has always been a thoughtful and helpful man. I’m grateful for his company and affection. We have a lot of memories from the time we were in South Korea. One of my favorites was when he asked me to represent Panama with him in an event in Seoul wearing the national costume, the Pollera and Montuno. He ordered and bought the Pollera for me with all of the accessories. We danced the Panamanian folk dance together, and the show was so beautiful that all of the other countries and attendants wanted to take pictures with us."

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 send a thank you card to my mom because she has been everything to me. She told me to always keep clean shoes. She said, “Women are always looking at your feet. They look at your eyes and they know they can get into your heart.” She is my favorite person. She made me a man. She taught me respect. She taught me how to respect women. I have eight sisters and I am the only boy. She taught me to have respect to get respect. She always told me that. I grew up good. I went to college and then I became a professional wrestler. It goes on from there. She supported me through it all. Still does. There is nothing like a mama’s boy."

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 name is Paola, and I am a systems engineer. I live with my mom, brother and my four-year–old son. There are so many people to whom I would like to send a thank you note, but today I want to say thanks to my boyfriend Eduard.  He had been more than special and sweet with me during the time that we have been together; he has been my confidante. One special memory is the first time he held my hand. I remember it was a Saturday night and we were on a date watching a play in a small theater.  We were in the middle of the play, and then suddenly he got his hands close to mine, then closer, and then we were holding hands.  He looked at me, and he smiled. It was special because we both were nervous about that moment, but without a doubt, it was a special moment for me and our relationship."

Gratitude Story from United Kingdom

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? "It was the first time I ever went to England; my girlfriend-to-be lived in a sort of student house, and there was this one guy there with a Beatles-looking hairstyle and a strange accent, something in-between Yorkshire and southern England. He was somewhat inward and cranky all at the same time. However, we started talking and soon found out we had a whole lot more in common than we thought, from a love of Carpenter’s The Thing and Big Trouble in Little China, as well as a fondness for The Clash, Husker Du, and Thin Lizzy. He brought me his acoustic guitar—a wonderful Taylor, and we hit off for the rest of the night. I’d play something, and he’d fill in the lead and vice versa. We eventually ran out of beer, and we hastened to the nearest Tesco to buy a new batch of lager and spent the rest of the night listening to his vinyl collection: all the way from Slayer to Enrio Morricone."Thanks, Joe; it was a blast."

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? “If I got a chance, I would want to tell my mom, “Thank you for being a blessing, and thank you for being an example and a role model in my life. You are a godsend and a blessing. You have been such an example for me, and I hope that I can be even half as good a mother as you have been.” “I have so many memories of my mother. We had one trip, though that I particularly remember; it was just a short one. One night my sister’s roommate called, and she said that my sister was sick. They lived in Germiston (another city) and we had to drive there, though it was quite late and quite dark. The whole way there, I was hysterical. I just couldn’t believe how much composure my mother had and the comfort she offered me, all while knowing that her daughter was sick. Driving for an hour while your one daughter is sick and your other daughter is hysterical and keeping your composure… my mom was so amazing." (Pretoria, South Africa) .

Gratitude Story from Lisbon, Portugal

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 a thank you note to my older brother Alexandre for all the support he has provided when I was young.  It's not simple to choose between all the important people I care about nowadays, but I recognize he played a major role in me becoming the person I am today. “I remember when I was about fifteen or sixteen years old, it was awesome to have him coming for the weekend at our parents’ country house. We'd always shared the attic while growing up, and his return offered us a great opportunity to catch up and talk about everything that was going on in Lisbon. Alexandre was in the music industry—a guitar player starting his own career. I wasn't exactly sure of what I wanted to be at the time and lacked confidence. What happened is that he noticed my indecisiveness, and during the summer holidays asked our parents to let me go on a road trip with him.  Even though our parents were very conservative, they agreed. “That was the turning point. Suddenly we were camping outside and meeting new people regularly. It challenged my temper, challenged my ability to stay calm in new situations. We'd listen to a lot of music in the car, stop by a beach to take a swim, and make a couple of sandwiches for dinner. I had the opportunity to amaze myself in quite a few moments during that period of time, and even though my brother and I undoubtedly knew each other, it was the chance to start understanding each other in a more meaningful way—both our thoughts and aspirations—while making our way down the coast. Back at home, I told my family about some of the highlights of the trip, but noticed something more significant. The boy in me had changed. I was eager for more, and I felt brave. It was with that mindset that I entered university the following year and followed my path until today.” (Lisbon, Portugal) . . . . .#gratitude #thanks #positivevibes  #parentslove #motherlover  #heartsign #storytelling #gratitudeisthebestattitude #kindnessmatters #inspiring #parents #digithanks #gratitudedaily #storyteller #lisbon #portugal
