Eucharisteo: The Art of Thankfulness #221-250

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.

221. Charles Dickens stories

222. rose colored pillows

223. core workouts

224. roasted brussel sprouts with bacon

225. thrift store dresser, ready for a make-over

226. top hats

227. wonderful ideas that seem to bloom out of nowhere

228. grandfather clocks

229. brightly plumed parrots

230. stoneware

231. tiny voices around the corner calling, “Mommy!”

232. how a two year old can turn your legs into a jungle gym

233. new mirrors

234. tiny red buds, just waiting to burst into green

235. tree trunks, black and slick with rain

236. front yards heavy with clover

237. the click of the heater turning on

238. headphones that fit just right

239. lists of schoolbooks

240. woven baskets, rough and beautiful

241. pom pom bedskirts

242. explaining to your husband what a bedskirt is

243. pale blue morning skies

244. allergy medicine

245. booking flights to visit a dear friend

246. vibrant purple blossoms flecked here and there among bright green

247. hooks

248. WWII history

249. headstones

250. selkies

 

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.
