Eight Gifts that Do Not Cost Anything

Eight Gifts that Do Not Cost Anything


 1) THE GIFT OF LISTENING . . .
But you must REALLY listen. No interrupting, no daydreaming, no planning 
your response. Just listening.


2) 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.


3) THE GIFT OF LAUGHTER . . .
Clip cartoons. Share articles and funny stories. Your gift will say, "I love 
to laugh with you."


4) 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.


5) 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.


6) THE GIFT OF A FAVOR . . .
Every day, go out of your way to do something kind.


7) 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.


8) 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. Friends are a very rare 
jewel, indeed. They make you smile and encourage you to succeed. They lend 
an ear, they share a word of praise, and they always want to open their 
hearts to us . . .
