The gift of listening…
Try giving this to someone in need.
And you must really listen. No interrupting,
no daydreaming, no planning your responses. Just listen.
The gift of signs of affection…
Be generous with your hugs, kisses and
gentle squeezes of the hand. Let these
tiny actions demonstrate the love inside of you.
The gift of a note…
It can be as simple as “I Love You” or
as creative as a sonnet. Put your notes
where they will surprise your loved ones.
The gift of laughter…
Just cut out a cartoon, save a clever article.
Your gift will say, “I love to laugh with you.”
The gift of compliment…
A simple “You look good in blue” or “Good supper”
can be of greatest value to those who
may feel they are being taken for granted.
The gift of a favor…
Help with the dishes, run an errand, etc.
The gift of leaving alone…
There are times in our lives when we
want nothing better than to be left alone.
Become more sensitive to those times and give solitude.
The gift of a cheerful disposition…
Try to be cheerful around those you love.
The gift of a game…
Offer to play your loved one’s favorite game.
Even if you lose, you’ll be a winner.
