This Holiday Season I will give these gifts to my family and friends.
1) THE GIFT OF LISTENING...
No interrupting, no daydreaming, no planning your response.
2) THE GIFT OF AFFECTION...
I will be generous with appropriate hugs, kisses, pats on the back and
handholds. I will let these small actions demonstrate the love I have for family
3) THE GIFT OF LAUGHTER...
Funny pictures. Share articles, funny stories and funny
greetings. My 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, I will go out of my way to do something kind.
7) THE GIFT OF SOLITUDE...
There are times when we want nothing better than to be left
alone. I will 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.
