- THE GIFT OF LISTENING…
But you must REALLY listen.
No interrupting, no daydreaming,
no planning your response.
- 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…
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.
