Today I am thankful for Google Photos. It may be a strange thing to be thankful for but I am, because no matter how many phones I have gone through over the years, I am still able to access photos from years ago.
A month ago when I was robbed, its silly but once everything settled down and I got my phone replaced, the thing that set me off and made me cry was thinking I had lost all my photos that I had had on my phone. My physical phone could be replaced. My contacts on my phone, at least the important ones, could be replaced. But the thousands of photos that I had taken and saved of people and places, on my phone could not be replaced.
But with Google Photos, with my gmail account, I was able to still have all my past photos. Today I was able to look through photos and memories from all the way back in high school. I really don’t have a good memory, so I like to look back at pictures and remember different stages of my life, the people in my life and the places I have been.
