Using a Gratitude Journal App

by Carmen

I'm grateful for having lived in Sicily, and for my Gratitude Journal app! © Carmen Grant


I’m thankful for having spent the last year in Sicily. What are you thankful for?

November is here and American Thanksgiving is on its way. What better time than now to download the Gratitude Journal App? This year I will be grateful for being able to go home for Thanksgiving, something I have not done in 3 years since being stationed far from home in both Washington State and Sicily.

HappyTapper.com’s Gratitude Journal App has been a go to app for me because it is really important that I write down the daily blessings in my life both big and small. I’ve been using the  Gratitude Journal App for iPhone/iTouch since I bought my iPod Touch two years ago. The little monk that greets me when I open the app makes me happy, and a smile is enough to be grateful for any day!

Remember Past Blessings as you Write and Create New Ones

I love being able to recall everything great that has happened in my life. I also enjoy going back in time to dark days. The worst day by far was the double ear infection on both children, while I had pneumonia during a snowy Washington winter – all while my husband was deployed…naturally.

Doesn’t get much worse than being sick and having to care for sick young children. But alas I managed to be thankful for antibotics, Theraflu, and some awesome friends that brought me chicken soup round the clock.

Here is a quick video about the Gratitude Journal app:

Gratitude Journal was developed by HappyTapper.com and started as a quick idea by a mom in need of showing the world that there is always something to be grateful for. The app is only 99 cents, and 10% of all sales go to charity.

I was not asked to review this app here on 5 Minutes for Mom. It has just been a blessing in my life, so I wanted to share it with you.

I would love to use an app like this! There are so many for fairly pointless reasons, in my opinion, and I like how this keeps the focus on what’s really important! If only I had a device that it was capable with, I’d get it this second.

Well Katie, i think its time to add an iPhone/iTouch to your christmas list! lol. Or get yourself a nice journal and do it by hand. I find “old school” writing to be very therapeutic compared to typing. It sticks in my head better too. But this app is great because i can thumb through my days and look back quickly when Im sitting in the car or just laying on the couch. ;)

I have kept a gratitude journal before, I pick up a planner during the after Christmas sales to use for it. But I like how this is all contained digitally, takes up less room and you can do it anywhere! I just got my first upgraded cell phone in 5 years – terrible for a blogger, I know…so I’m not too sure how much luck I’ll have putting it on a wish list…but Iguess one can always try:)

Ooh, wonderful app. I’ll need to look for something similar for Android. Great idea and one I’ll share with my kids. I’ve tried to keep a journal before – this should be much more convenient. Thanks so much for sharing.
