Grateful/thankful #2 (permalink) Mon Jan 17, 2005 11:40 am   Grateful/thankful
 

Grateful means that you appreciate what someone has done for you and you want to express your thanks. Thankful means that you are relieved/pleased that what you hoped for has actually happened.

In one sentence you could say: She was grateful to her teachers and also thankful that she had passed her exams.
