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 youā€™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 #boliviašŸ‡§šŸ‡“

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? šŸ˜€ Thanks to my loving family who have been supportive throughout my entire life.Ā  My dad was always a fan of tough love, but that has helped me become the person I am today. Iā€™m thankful that I have a loving and supportive girlfriend, Ana, by my side; weā€™ve been together for nearly four years now, and I hope that our love will be long and lasting for my entire life. Iā€™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. Iā€™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. Itā€™s never about the money; itā€™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? ā€œIf 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 IĀ“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.ā€ (Berlin, Germany) . . . #gratitude #thanks #positivevibes Ā #heartsign #storytelling #gratitudeisthebestattitude #kindnessmatters #inspiring #digithanks #gratitudedaily #storyteller #macedoniaĀ #thanksfriend

"I would like to send a thank-you note to my ā€œsecond parents,ā€ 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.Ā  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. Iā€™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, ā€œWomen are always looking at your feet. They look at your eyes and they know they can get into your heart.ā€ 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.Ā She supported me through it all. Still does. There is nothing like a mamaā€™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.Ā  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.Ā  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.Ā  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."

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 Carpenterā€™sĀ The ThingĀ andĀ Big Trouble in Little China, as well as a fondness for The Clash, Husker Du, and Thin Lizzy. He brought me his acoustic guitarā€”a wonderful Taylor, and we hit off for the rest of the night. Iā€™d play something, and heā€™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? ā€œIf I got a chance, I would want to tell my mom, ā€œThank 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.ā€Ā ā€œI 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 sisterā€™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 couldnā€™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 composureā€¦ my mom was so amazing." (Pretoria, South Africa) .
