When would you use the word “thankful” vs. “grateful”?
What do these two words mean to you?
We discussed the idea of being thankful or grateful after reading one man’s realization that he’d been misspelling the word “grateful” as “greatful” his entire life. He said that he’d been grateful so seldom in his life that he never knew how to spell the word.
“I had been spelling it as though a greatful person was a person full of greatness, rather than a person full of gratitude.”
