Eucharisteo: The Art of Thankfulness #166-180

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.

166. being told my my sister, in no certain terms, that I am not allowed to complain about Southern winters (she is right…)

167. a still house on Christmas morning, before everyone else is awake

168. stuffing stockings

169. stories that begin with “Once upon a time…”

170. the luring strains of a violin

171. thoughtful surprises

172. bullet journals

173. realistic goals for the new year

174. hand cramps from writing too much

175. revisiting old projects, as so feel new again!

176. shoveling snow (or at least memories of doing so…)

177. heated seats in cars (oh my lanta, I want to hug the person that invented these!!!)

178. heating pads 

179. borrowing my husband’s socks to wear on top of my own (catch the theme here?)

180. farmhouse tables

 

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.
