Eucharisteo: The Art of Thankfulness #141-165

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.

141. this scene with Danny Kaye and Vera Ellen

142. long afternoon naps (feels like it only happens once a quarter, but still amazing!!!)

143. Christmas cards

144. quickstep technique

145. finished projects

146. grocery lists

147. Glenn Miller music

148. blue knit sweaters

149. stories about my grandparents’ escapades

150. watching The Godfather Part 1 with my husband

151. peppermint gum

152. long sheer curtains

153. our dryer that plays an exceptionally long finish tune

154. three year old boys pulling fire alarms out of curiosity….

155. Baby escaping the church nursery twice (he waits by the door all innocent looking, then bolts when someone opens the door….kid can crawl!)

156. latkes and schnitzel discussions

157. freshly baked bread

158. bright green scarves

159. making plans for the future

160. Goose’s excitement over new schoolbooks

161. Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata mvt. 3

162. black beans cooked with celery, carrots, onions, and garlic

163. shelves lined with books

164. bagels and cream cheese

165. resting when you desperately need it

 

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.
