Is there an emoji for Thank you

I replied to the earlier post by Asmus Freytag, with an abstract design 
idea and asking if abstract emoji are allowed, and only after I had 
posted it did I see the post from Mark Davis.

I then looked at the document for which Mark Davis provides a link, but 
I have not as yet found anything in that document that says that an 
emoji must be a pictorial representation of a real object or objects.

But even if that is the present policy, it could be changed at some 
future time.

Sometimes change is necessary for progress. Unicode Inc. changed its 
policy on whether to encode any emoji at all.

Allowing abstract emoji could open up great possibilities. I have 
already designed some abstract emoji for personal pronouns, colourful, 
language-independent, clearly distinct each from the others yet within a 
related design framework.
