Eight Gifts That Do Not Cost A Cent
1 The Gift of Listening...
But you must really listen.
No interrupting, no daydreaming,
no planning your response.
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 simple
"Thanks for the help" note for 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 superb job",
or "That was a wonderful meal"
can make someone's day.
6 The Gift of a Favour...
Every day go out of your way
to do something kind.

than to be left alone.
Be sensitive to those times and give the gift of
solitude to others.
8 The Gift of 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
