“While we try to teach our children all about life, our children teach us what life is all about.”

Gratitude is the simplest path to a happy life. We’ll be the first to admit that with so much going on each day, it’s so easy to forget. That’s exactly why we created our #GratitudeStories feature. Each week our staff cuts together a one-minute highlight reel from an inspiring Tribute and tells the story behind it. We hope these videos serve as a little reminder to say the nice things in your head and celebrate your friends every single day.
We are excited to introduce Cristian and his wife Carrie for this week’s Gratitude Story and we’re even more excited to introduce Nico, the newest member of their family! Click on the video above to hear the collective cheer for Cristian and Carrie as they embark on this next journey of their lives, parenthood. Congrats guys!
Why did you think it was a good idea for this person to receive a Tribute?
Cristian (Husband and Father of First Born Child): It’s a good idea, actually a great idea because it allowed friends and Family from around the world to be there to congratulate her following the birth.
What is your favorite thing about this person?
Cristian: My favorite thing about Carrie is, she’s not only my loving wife nor the mother of my first born child but my best friend.
What were the circumstances when they received their Tribute? (ie. Where, When, How?)
Cristian: We were still in the hospital at that moment and I have brought with me my laptop to show her the gift.
What was their reaction while watching their Tribute?
Cristian: The reaction was priceless, The T.O.J – Tears of Joy went flooding inside the hospital building.
How did this make you personally feel?
Cristian: This made me feel really happy, there are floods of tears of happiness. And no one can deny how much having a first born baby meant to us.
Please ask the Tribute recipient how it made him/her feel to receive their Tribute.
