    Your heart filled with concern ...?

    One of my online teachers deserves to be thanked. She is compassionate and always inquiring about my state of health.

    Would you please help me make this short line below more expressed and hearty?


    It is: Your heart filled with concern and love for which I am thanking you.

    "Indebted for" doesn't work, MatthewWai. We say that we indebted to a person.

    Re: Your heart filled with concern ...?

    I think you have misunderstood what that means. It says:

    "indebted (to somebody) (for something)
    (formal)
    grateful to somebody for helping you
    I am deeply indebted to my family for all their help."


    The example sentences shows that it means "indebted to somebody for something", not "indebted to somebody" or "indebted for something".

    Re: Your heart filled with concern ...?

    'To somebody' is in brackets, so I think it is optional. Dictionaries usually put optional things in brackets. Am I wrong?

    To say you are indebted (other than for money) is the same as to say you are grateful.
    You have to be grateful for something.
