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.
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 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.

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 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
