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 handholds.
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 make others feel good.
