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 hand holds.
Let these small actions demonstrate
the love you have for family
3.) THE GIFT OF LAUGHTER...
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 or 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 super job."
or "That was a wonderful meal"
can make someone's day.
6.) THE GIFT OF A FAVOR...
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 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.
One more from somewhere else...
*THE GIFT OF ACCEPTANCE.. .
Everyone does the best they can
with what they have to work with
be it their head or their heart.*
