Random Act of Kindness #9

It's Thursday and you know what that means, friends...RAK challenge! Today's challenge is very easy and it won't even push you out of your comfort zone.

We're going to learn a lesson from dogs today. Take a look at these cuties to get you good and ready...


Have you ever noticed how a dog greets its' owner after being away from each other, even for a short while? It's all tail wags and slobbery kisses! Does it matter that you didn't have time to take them on their walk this morning or that you've been away all day long while they've been bored at home? NO!...they still greet you with an unconditional happy hello.

Today's RAK: Greet your spouse, kids, roommates, etc. at the door with the same enthusiasm your dog would. It's that easy! Give them the gift of your time and your attention.

Truth be told, this is usually how my hubby and kids are greeted...


But sometimes it's more along the lines of this...


Or, maybe, I'm a little tired and they see this...


But today, it'll be this...


Much better, right? Wouldn't this make you feel good? How could it not?

So friends, there's your challenge. Gift those you love with a little random greeting of time, attention and of course, slobbery kisses!

On that note, I'll wave good-bye...


Play catch-up with your RAK challenges herehere, and here. Now go make someone smile!

How true this is... although I am usually the last one home in the afternoons, some days I walk in the door barking (no pun intended, lol!!) orders so that we can to get to our destination for the evening. Even on those days I really need to come in with smiles, a hugs & kisses for my family!! It's the least I can do for my favorite people in the world!!!

I overheard a friend the other day, when her kids got in the car after school she said, "I missed you today!" I thought, how nice is that I usually say, "How much homework do you have?" Thanks for the reminder!!
