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.
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 might 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.”
Thank you for all the gifts you have given to us this year!
