Priceless Gifts to Give for Free
Friday, February 24, 2012
The gift of listening: No interrupting, no daydreaming, no planning your responses. Just listen.
The gift of affection: Be generous with appropriate hugs, kisses, pats on the back, and handholding.
The gift of laughter: Share articles, funny stories, and cartoons to tell someone, "I love to laugh with you."
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.
The gift of solitude: Be sensitive to the times when others want nothing more than to be left alone.
The gift of a cheerful disposition: The easiest way to feel good is to extend a kind word to someone, even if it's just saying hello or thank you.
The gift of a prayer: Let your friends and loved ones know you pray for them--then do it!
