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 send a thank-you note to my grandfather. I remember you since I remember myself as a person! From that point onward, I have memories of when I got home from school and ran towards you, asking for your blessing, and you gave me a kiss on the hand; I remember the crowd of people in your office every day. I remember all the Christmases in your company, how you preserved the family union, the affection and love that you always gave us, as your daughters. I knew I could always count on you. But mostly, I remember the awesome stories you've told, full of wisdom, that taught me a lot and helped me to see you as the hero you were! A hero that risked his own life to save his son, one that was in war with the mission to save lives.A hero as a father, as a grandfather, as a friend, and as a doctor!Thank you, Grandpa Costa."

Mária Garád 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 thank to my husband, Péter.  We have been married for forty-one years, and life has been like a poem with him. We are living together and keeping our love, respect, and family ties intact. One recent memory I have of him is the trip from which we just returned today.  I would like to thank my dearest husband for taking me again to Hallstatt, Austria. He had taken me there first on our honeymoon, forty-one years ago.  The landscape was one like the ones described in fairy tales.  We enjoyed the beauty of nature and refreshed our love in the same place. We had fun, walked around, had dinner there as we rewound our memories. It was unforgettable. We love traveling and exploring new places together every year." ………….. Péter Garád 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 am very grateful to my wife, Mária, for being a part of my life for the past forty-one years. I also would like to thank her for accompanying me on our last trip to Hallstatt, Austria. She was a kindergarten teacher. So she mirrored that mother part of herself in our life together by being a good wife, mother, and grandmother. I am kind of fond of her for this tenderness. Yes, now she is retired, but still takes care of her three grandchildren.  Besides, even I feel deeply that kindness she uses to guide a kid to demonstrate the meaning of the life. Our best memory was our honeymoon in Hallstatt, Austria. So it is no coincidence that we wished to feel the same atmosphere there, even years later.  Forty-one years ago in Hallstatt, on our second day of our honeymoon, we rented a boat to see that amazing landscape closer, but we couldn’t predict the rainy weather that started suddenly after a couple of minutes while we were still on the boat.  We both got wet under the heavy rain until we arrived at our hotel."

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 thank my parents for everything because if it wasn’t for them,I wouldn’t be able to travel from the Philippines and do this road trip in Europe. I would like to especially thank my dad, Roberto (people call him Boyet.) Even though he is in the Philippines recovering from a health problem and I am in Copenhagen, I think of him every day. I would like to thank him for all of his financial help and for giving me the opportunity to travel around Europe. The best memory I have of him is from Valentine’s Day last year. I usually don’t receive gifts on this day and it was the first time my daddy gave me present; a teddy bear. During breakfast he just came down in the kitchen and said “look, I have a little teddy bear for you.” I was so surprised that my reaction was “wow, it’s so sweet. Thank you!” I really liked this gesture and it made me happy. Of course, I still have his present in my bedroom at my home in the Philippines."(Copenhagen, Denmark) . . . #gratitude #thanks #positivevibes  #parentslove #fatherlover  #heartsign #storytelling #gratitudeisthebestattitude #kindnessmatters #inspiring #parents #digithanks #gratitudedaily #storyteller  #copenhagen #denmark

Gratitude Story from Jakarta, Indonesia

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 wife, Ima. We have been together for almost 40 years. I am 63 years old and she is 59 years old. Since we have been together for a long time, we have had a lot of moments together. It’s hard to pick just one, but there is a memory that will always stick in my mind. I’m not a romantic person, and I’m not good at telling stories. I hope this will be appealing enough. It was 10 or 11 years ago. I was a heavy smoker. I could smoke 1-2 packages of cigarettes a day, and 1 package contained around 10 cigarettes. Like you, I always knew that smoking was a bad habit, but I did it every day. I felt calm when I smoked. There was a time that my smoking habit backfired on me. I started to cough, and was sick. It felt hard to breathe, so I went to the doctor and he said I should stop smoking. Like any other heavy smoker, it was hard to quit smoking. It was my wife who supported me while I tried to quit. She was the one who always yelled at me when I tried to smoke even only 1 or 2 cigarettes a day. It was a very hard process. It took almost a year for me to really stop smoking. However, my wife patiently accompanied me through the whole process. She supported me all the time. Sometimes, she asked me to wake up in the morning so that we could run together. She pushed me to start living a good and healthy life, because she didn’t want to lose me too soon. Her persistence and love was the best booster for me to quit smoking. You know, I would like to spend our life together. I want to see our sons married and having children. I want to play with our grandchildren. Thanks to my wife, I passed through the process and fully stopped smoking. It would have been an incredibly hard process if I tried to do it alone. She was always there and never stopped supporting me. Thank you. I love you, my angel. ( Jakarta,Indonesia)

Gratitude Story from Banda Aceh, Indonesia

If I were asked to send a thank-you note to someone, I would send it to my grandmother. "I loved her very much, and though she died two years ago, I have many wonderful memories with her. I was the only daughter in my family. My parents had only one child. My mom and dad are hardworking. They went to work in the morning and came home late in the afternoon; therefore, I was taken care of by my grandmother. In the morning, I was taken to grandma's house and was picked up after my parents came home from work. Grandmother lived alone in her house after grandfather died ten years ago. She is very glad that I visited her house every day. My grandmother is a kind, but disciplined woman; she is also a good cook. She often made my favorite: fried bananas. I liked them very much. Grandma is also a person who liked to spoil me, kept me company while I was sleeping, and advised me. My grandmother never yelled at me; in fact, she always defended me if my parents scolded me. She was the best grandmother. I really miss her." (Aceh, Indonesia) . . . #Aceh #Indonesia #gratitude #DigiThanks

Gratitude Story from Kumasi, Ghana

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 Tracy Amankwaa, and my mum is someone to whom I really wish to send a thank you note. “One of the best memories I have of my mum was when I turned ten years old. I was in boarding school during that period, but mum didn’t hesitate: she came to visit me in school with my dad and celebrated my birthday with me at school. They brought a birthday cake, drinks, and biscuits for my friends and me. They came along with lots of food which fed almost all of my classmates along with some friends in other classes. I was really happy that day, and the day still lingers in mind”, said Tracy. “Then when I came home for the holiday, out of the blue, my mum told my siblings and me to dress up because she was taking us out. Thinking about where exactly she was taking us was such a nice feeling,” Tracy said.  My mum took us to The Rattary Park Kumasi where there was a lot of food and many games to play. “I met a lot of kids, most of whom I later became friends with. That day was filled with fun and enjoyment. We took pictures, and my mum also met up with an old friend of hers, a friend who had also come along with her family. Both families exchanged pleasantries and had an amazing time together. On our way home, my mum told me it was part of my post-birthday celebration. It was an amazing experience.

Gratitude Story from Macedonia, Kicevo

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? Whom am I  thankful for? My kid, first and foremost, my kid. Maxim has been the light of my life, and I love him more than anything! He is three years old, and he recently started kindergarten, which is tough, since he doesn’t like it very much.  He cries for his mum always.  Ha ha 😀  My wife is the second of my choices; she has given me the gift of Maxim for which I shall be always thankful. She has had a hard time starting recently because she was with Maxim all the time. He took it really hard, and the first week he was crying a lot, but he has gotten used to it. 😀 Third, my mum and dad, although they live in France. I was born there, but they brought me here, and that was one of their best choices because of the friends I have here. I wouldn’t replace them with anyone. They raised me and gave me the chance to study at the best schools, and that made me the person I am today. (Kicevo,Macedonia) . . . .  #kicevo #macedonia #gratitude #digithanks #gratitudeisattitude

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 thank this woman at the school. I’m from different city, and I live alone here. When I came here three years ago, I had no contacts and no money. She is the one who gave me this guard’s job in the school. She takes good care of me and brings food for me every day. I love her smile and her polite way of talking. She has done more for me than my family members. I want to thank her because without her, I could never have survived in this city. I pray to God that she gets the best of everything and that she is rewarded for the kindness she has bestowed on me. My best memory of her is when she confirmed this job. I remember she talked for an hour and listened to my personal problems. That day, she won my heart. She inspired me to be good with strangers and help people who are in need.
