Eucharisteo: The Art of Thankfulness #276-300

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.

276. the sound of my kids laughing hysterically in the other room

277. sunglasses

278. a summer day in the 80s, instead of the 90s 

279. tiny toddler boy blue jeans

280. fried chicken

281. spotted fauns in our backyard

282. clementines

283. brand new color pencils

284. watching my daughter attend her first birthday party

285. huge ceiling fans

286. acoustic panels

287. scribbles of chalk on the driveway

288. misunderstandings that lead to deeper understandings

289. clean vent covers

290. black matte spray paint

291. the process of learning contentment

292. houseplants

293. rooms filled to the brim with light

294. finally finishing this story

295. children’s Bibles

296. designing and building a firepit (who knew that could be so much fun!)

297. counting by fives

298. a freshly vacuumed van (ahhhh….delightful…..for all of the five seconds it will actually stay this way…)

299. pantries

300. stained glass windows


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.
