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


    2) 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.


    3) THE GIFT OF LAUGHTER . .
    Clip cartoons. Share articles and funny stories. Your 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, go out of your way to do something kind.


    7) 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.


    [​IMG] 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. Friends are a very rare
    jewel, indeed. They make you smile and encourage you to succeed. They lend
    an ear, they share a word of praise, and they always want to open their
    hearts to us . .<!-- right top row table end --><TD class=row1 vAlign=bottom noWrap align=left><TABLE cellSpacing=0 cellPadding=5 width="100%" border=0><!-- right bottom row start -->

    Free gifts to be given!?

    Hello Shilpi,

    These gifts really are free to be given, so what's stopping us from giving them!
    Am going to start right away ...thanks for shaing them with us. Sometimes we all need these doses as reminders now and then.
    Have a great day!
