EIGHT GIFTS THAT DON'T COST A CENT



EIGHT GIFTS THAT DON'T COST A CENT

The Gift of Listening
But you must really listen. Don't interrupt, don't daydream, don't plan your response. Just listen.

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 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 Favor
Everyday, go out of your way to
do something kind.

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.

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 Cheerful Disposition
The easiest way to feel good is to extend
a kind word to someone.

Lovely! How you get the lines right below each other? My blog will not allow me to get it to look that way.
