*Gifts that Don't 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 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 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."
