Eucharisteo: The Art of Thankfulness #201-220

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.

201. carefully mended princess dresses

202. the sharp scent of freshly cut onion grass

203. bomber jackets

204. large ginger roots

205. spinach pizza

206. the incredible delight in teaching another to read

207. finally finishes the taxes (whew!)

208. ten pound weights

209. cornflower blue skies

210. simple wooden chairs

211. strength for today, and bright hope for tomorrow

212. our fire engine red push mower

213. heather gray t-shirts

214. the bright burst of yellow blooms next to orange brick

215. the soft touch of a child’s hand cupping your cheek (and then asking “What zat, Mama? for the hundred time….)

216. laughter over shared experiences

217. phone calls with loved ones states away

218. La Vie en Rose

219. tea with milk

220. sunglasses, gifted by my brother, ten years ago. Still rockin them!

 

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.
