Thankful For...

Last year, I discovered this great app entitled "Thankfulfor."  It's akin to having an online gratitude journal-- on my iPhone.  It allows me to type in what I'm thankful for, and date stamps each entry--wherever I am.

In anticipation of the approaching turkey day holiday (make that tofurkey day for me!), here's a sampling of a few past entries I have made using this app:

I love this app!  Going back and reading past entries is like glimpsing back in time--and doing so in a very thankful manner.

Joy and peace!  T.
