Eucharisteo: The Art of Thankfulness #301-320

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.

301. heavy frost sparkling on the grass

302. Chanukah blessings

303. nurturing a love for reading

304. peanut butter by the spoonful

305. fifteen pound weights

306. weird conversations with my three year old about bodily functions

307. the incredible gift of watching my parents continue to grow in grace and wisdom

308. staying ahead of the morning coffee shop rush

309. lace and pearls woven together

310. the bright red cardinal calling to his mate

311. the scent of fast approaching winter in the air

312. warm baths

313. warm showers

314. a door handle, now fixed (we can open our door again! Yay!)

315. thousands of tiny Christmas lights

316. little girls in pig tails

317. how much my little boy loves Chewbacca

318. little kids’ wish lists

319. soft gloves on frosty mornings

320. a place called home

 

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.
