Thankfulness should be a marked characteristic of every believer. An understanding of our extreme soul danger before trusting Christ, and the salvation we have in Him, should always lead us again to thoughts of gratitude (2 Cor 9:15). This also leads us to recognize that all in this lfe we receive from His hand, so that "in every thing give thanks" (1 Thess 5:18). Since He uses many people in His work in our lives, gratitude should flow to them as well - in essence, when we thank them, we bless the God who provided for us through them.
