Eucharisteo: The Art of Thankfulness #376- #400

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.

376. freshly painted walls

377. popcorn drizzled with butter

378. swing dancing

379. library books

380. bird feeders

381. watching our oldest ride her bike without training wheels

382. pink roses

383. juke boxes

384. tiny wool coats

385. the first snow of the year

386. Stare at the Sun

389. laundry still warm from the dryer

390. this scene

391. learning new things about tomatoes (did you know that you’re not supposed to store them in the fridge?)

392. blue eyes

393. brown eyes

394. the way the afternoon light streams through the window

395. the sound of typing

396. string cheese

397. impromptu runs for ice cream

398. tiny faces smeared with said ice cream

399. beautiful and sentimental paintings

400. beam of headlights down the driveway (my favorite person is 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.
