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 15. Take someone’s cart back into the store. I saw an older woman who was just finishing putting her groceries into her car, so I offered to take her cart, saving her the trouble of walking it down to the cart rack. People have done this for me before, and it was sweet and unexpected. It’s such a simple, easy thing to do. I was going in to the store anyway, and I needed a cart, so it was win-win.

Day 16. Leave coupons next to matching items at the store. Save someone else a little money.
