EIGHT GIFTS THAT DO NOT COST A CENT

 

  • THE GIFT OF LISTENING…
    But you must REALLY listen. No interrupting, no daydreaming, no planning your response. Just listening.
  • THE GIFT OF AFFECTION…
    Be generous with appropriate hugs, kisses, pats on the back and holds. Let these small actions demonstrate the love you have for family and friends.
  • THE GIFT OF LAUGHTER…
    Clip cartoons. Share articles and funny stories. Your gift will say, “I love to laugh with you.”
  • THE GIFT OF A WRITTEN NOTE…
    It can be a simple “Thanks for the help” note or a full sonnet. A brief, handwritten note may be remembered for a lifetime, and may even change a life.
  • THE GIFT OF A COMPLIMENT…
    A simple and sincere, “You look great in red,” “You did a super job” or “That was a wonderful meal” can make someone’s day.
  • THE GIFT OF A FAVOR…
    Every day, go out of your way to do something kind.
  • THE GIFT OF SOLITUDE…
    There are times when we want nothing better than to be left alone. Be sensitive to those times and give the gift of solitude to others.
  • THE GIFT OF A CHEERFUL DISPOSITION…
    The easiest way to feel good is to extend a kind word to someone, really it’s not that hard to say, Hello or Thank You.
