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."

Gratitude Story from Croatia

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

Gratitude Story from 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? 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 ."

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."
