This or That?

‘thankful’ or ‘grateful’?

Grateful is the normal word for people’s reactions to kindness, favours etc.

Example: I’m very grateful for all your help.

Thankful is used especially for feelings of relief at having avoided a danger or at having come through an unpleasant experience.

Example: I’m thankful that we got home before the storm started.
