This Christmas you should give these Eight Gifts 
- Unknown -

"THE GIFT OF LISTENING: But you must REALLY listen. No interrupting, no daydreaming, no planning your response. Just listening.

"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.

"THE GIFT OF LAUGHTER: Clip cartoons. Share articles and funny stories. Your gift will say, 'I love to laugh with you.'

"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.

"THE GIFT OF A COMPLIMENT: A simple and sincere, 'You look great in red [blue or white],' 'You did a super job,' or 'That was a wonderful meal,' can make someone's day.

"THE GIFT OF A FAVOR: Every day, go out of your way to do something kind.

"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.

"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."
