Eucharisteo: The Art of Thankfulness #1-20

Eucharisteo: to be grateful, to feel thankful, to give thanks

I don’t know about you, but most days, I don’t feel all that thankful. Sometimes I simply don’t want to feel thankful. 

So I write them down.

And count them one by one.

  1. chai tea with milk
  2. moments to breathe
  3. how Baby’s sounds have changed in merely three days
  4. the shape of Little Man’s hands
  5. Goose’s fascination with ballet
  6. Monkey Bear’s round eyes, always scheming
  7. handwritten words
  8. beautiful memories
  9. new speakers for the bedroom
  10. fried eggs on a bed of spinach
  11. that Christ is the same– no matter how my life changes
  12. autumn rain pounding on the roof
  13. the bright blue laces of my tennis shoes that the boys love to tangle
  14. chicken and rice soup bubbling in the pot
  15. hilarious puns (or is that redundant?)
  16. the overall excitement over new episodes of Tangled (I mean, who wouldn’t be excited?!?!)
  17. mysterious bruises on my legs, which tell me that I’m so focused (or distracted…) , I no longer feel pain (the Avengers should call me…)
  18. the first scent of autumn on the breeze
  19. discovering that I can still count backwards by seven (boo ya!)
  20. monthly family haircuts

What are you thankful for today?

 

This idea of an Eucharisteo list came from the book One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp. Click here to read an excerpt from her book and learn more about the art of thankfulness.
