Eucharisteo: The Art of Thankfulness #451- 475

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.

451. our youngest pretending to be Hawkeye

452. green as far as the eye can see

453. worms

454. gardening shows

455. cinnamon

456. kind neighbors

457. compost

458. the touch of good earth in my hands

459. mothers

460. country churches who welcome strangers

461. stacks of unread books

462. tiny desks in unexpected places

463. leftovers

464. piles of bananas

465. the scent of freshly cut grass

466. clean sheets

467. tiny baby birds to watch

468. crazy wild rainstorms

469. losing power during a dinner party

470. candles and flashlights

471. laughter

472. The Next Right Thing

473. difficult, discouraging workouts

474. practice

475. hope

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.
