    Eight Gifts
    (That Don't Cost A Cent To Give )


    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 act ions demonstrate the love you have for family and friends.

    3) THE GIFT OF LAUGHTER...
    Funny pictures. Share articles, funny stories and funny greetings. Your gift will say, "I love to laugh with you."

    4) 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, and may even change a life.

    5) THE GIFT OF A COMPLIMENT...
    A simple and sincere,
    "You look g reat in red,"
    "You di d 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. Helping another without expectation of reward.

    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.
