Thoughts 4 my Thursday

We receive and give gifts all the time for special occasions but each and every day we can give a gift to someone that doesn't cost us a cent

1) Gift of listening.....really listen, no interrupting, no daydreaming, no planning your response, just listen

2)Gift of affection....Give hugs, kisses, hold hands, give pats on the back. Let these small actions show the love and appreciation you have for your family and friends

3)Gift of laughter....share articles and funny stories ...laughing is truly good for the soul

4)Gift of a written note.....It can be a simple "thank you" note or a note expressing your love..a handwritten note is one of those things that will be remembered for a lifetime

5)Gift of a compliment.....A simple and yet sincere "you look good today" or "you did a super job" can truly make someone's day

6)Gift of a favor.....every day do something for someone else and not expect anything in return

7)Gift of solitude....there are those times when you want nothing more than to be left alone,be sensitive to those times and give the gift of solitude to others when they need it

8)Gift of a cheerful of the easiest ways to feel good is to extend kind words to others, sometimes all it takes is a simple "hello" or "thank you"

"A hundred years from now it will not matter what our bank account was or what sort of house we lived in, or the kind of car we drove, but the world may be different if we do the best we can...we never know what miracle is wrought in our life or in the life of another"
