Gifts That Don't Cost

Gifts That Don't Cost


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, hand-written note may be
Remembered for a lifetime... It 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" or "I love You".


THE GIFT OF FRIENDSHIP...
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.
