November is a month that reminds us to give thanks for all the blessings we have. Sometimes it’s easy to feel down about the things we don’t have or the things in life that we don’t think are going our way. I’ve found that when I feel this way, it’s best to turn the focus away from myself and think about someone else. So, in the spirit of building a more grateful heart this month I’m going to perform 22 Random Acts of Kindness, one for each day leading up to and including Thanksgiving. They will be simple things that I hope will make someone else smile. If I don’t post a RAK each day, I will share a few at a time. This was inspired by my friend Kate, who did this for her birthday. I wrote about her RAKs here. Will you join me in showing thanks by participating in random acts of kindness? Share in the comments what you do for your random acts of kindness.

Day 2. Today I packed a backpack with a few dead tennis balls and threw them to all the dogs on my walking route. Some of the regulars weren’t out when I walked by, so I threw the balls into their yards. I was caught by one owner: right as I threw the ball to his dog he pulled into his driveway. I was trying to get a photo of his dog. I told the dog’s owner I was sharing tennis balls with all the dogs on my walk and he said his dog loves them, so feel free to share extra balls with her anytime. :)
