At Made in NH Expo, handmade bracelets reflect gratitude
The Made in NH Expo closed out its final day in Manchester. One vendor was selling handmade bracelets and a message of hope.
"My whole world seemed to be crumbling," said Beth Gross-Santos, creator of I am Grateful to You.
"Back in 2010, I really felt like I couldn't go on anymore. But I remember waking up in the middle of the night thinking about the people who didn't desert me and I wanted to say ‘thank you' but not from the head, but from the heart," said Gross-Santos.
The brand I am Grateful to You was born and her message is growing: take time to stop and show someone you are grateful that they are a part of your life.
"She has found her niche, and I'm going to be wearing my bracelet. I think her message is simple but very powerful," said Debbie Maurais, who bought herself a Grateful trinket.
Gross-Santos is working to spread her message worldwide, a way of paying it forward.
"It made me realize how lucky I am to have all the people, my friends and family who didn't desert me when I was at my lowest," said Gross Santos.
