A Teacher, Old Friend, a Rescue Worker, Charity, Soldier or Stranger?

People come and go in a lifetime, often never knowing the lasting positive influence they've had on another.  No matter where on Earth they roam, nor how much time has passed, the people who've helped us and shaped us deserve to know how; they deserve a heartfelt "Thank you."  Gratitude affirms life.  Express yours at ThankingOfYou.com.                             "Gratitude is the most sustainable and renewable of all human resources." N. Firestone      

  Mr. Sybil's faith in me instilled a confidence which I'd call upon for years . . . Written by ThankingOfYou founder for one of two teachers who inspired creation of the site, this exemplifies our mission. Click headline for story. 

"If you knew it would make a difference in their lives, would you take the time to thank the people who've made a difference in yours?"
