8 GIFTS THAT DON'T 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 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 extend a kind word to someone,
really it's not that hard to say, Hello or Thank You
