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."

Gratitude Story from Hungary

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."

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 Colombia

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’s a hard decision to send a thank you note to only one person, as I have a lot of people to be thankful for. I will choose a friend who I really appreciate, Maria Claudia Perry.⠀ ⠀ We have shared a lot of experiences, but the ones I remember the most were when we would go to parties or to a good disco to dance, as we both really enjoy dancing and had a good time. Those memories occurred around 1990-2000. We were both working full-time and sometimes I had to travel for weeks due to work. Due to our other commitments, we had to plan our time accordingly to make sure we had the chance to see one another. ⠀ ⠀ Something I remember with joy was the music we listened to. I’m a Classical Rock/Pop music fan and a Salsa fan, which were all popular at the time. In comparison, today the trendy music is mostly Reggaeton, which I don’t like at all. There is also an electronic music that I like, but it’s not the same as it was twenty years ago. Maria Claudia shared my taste in music, so we never struggled with selecting a place to go and have fun. It was easy for us to laugh and we always have an enjoyable time together." (Bogota, Colombia)⠀ ⠀ ⠀

Gratitude story from New York City, USA

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 father is an incredible man and full of unconditional love. I think the thing that he did for me, more so than anything, is just the unconditional love to be exactly who I want to be. He has always loved and never put conditions on what I do. He encouraged me to move to New York 30 years ago and become an artist. Whatever it is that I have decided to do with my life, he just wants to make sure I’m happy. I think everyone is born an artist. He nurtured whatever it is that I wanted to do. When I was a child, I asked him if I could paint my walls red and all of the furniture black. I remember that was one thing I did. And then I painted the walls purple and all of my furniture pink. He allowed me to wear whatever I wanted and he encouraged me to do what I wanted to."
