Eucharisteo: The Art of Thankfulness #321-350

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.

321. summer mornings at the pool

322. watching the kids at their first puppet show

323. the maddening power of a summer storm

324. Downton Abbey reruns

325. the conviction of the entire book of Proverbs

326. Heal Your Headache and the relief it has brought

327. white t-shirts

328. library visits

329. learning to use a miter saw

330. new recipes tested and to test

331. tiny pretzels

332. dance dresses with fringe

334. freshly baked challah bread

335. stray buttons

336. roasted vegetables

337. birthdays at the lake

338. slower paced days

339. the kids’ current obsession with Iron Man

340. evenings filled with dreaming and planning

341. sandals that light up

342. gifted tomato plants

343. being able to wear high heels again

344. wood glue

345. tulip poplars

346. thinking up names for the house

347. shutters and window boxes

348. decaf chai tea

349. diffuser panels

350. mysterious twilights and velvet green dusks

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.
