In 2014 I started a gratitude journal. Yesterday, when I was writing out things I was thankful for, it occurred to me how most of my lists are full of trivial things like flour sack towels, smart wool socks, and how good it feels to climb into a bed with freshly washed sheets. But being thankful for those little things has made a difference in my life.
My phone has become a gratitude journal of sorts as well. Here are some things I have been thankful for over the past few weeks:

Join us on Fridays and post shots from your phone–the everyday happenings, the surprise once-in-a-lifetime shots, the gorgioso selfie shots. They’re all welcome here. (as long as they’re family friendly!) Tag your post iphriday, or link to one of my posts and I will feature you on GD&C. I usually post around noon CST USA, but if you don’t make that deadline, I’ll just feature you the next week.
The entries this week inspired me, made me nostalgic, and caused breakfast-spitting giggles. I’m thankful for my iphriday phriends!
