7 Gifts

time-flies-clock-10-11-2006My friend Patrick Tomlin posted this and I thought I should share it:

  1. The Gift of Listening – But you must really listen. No interrupting, no day dreaming, 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 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 somebody’s day.
  6. The Gift of a Favor – Everyday, go out of your way to do something kind.
  7. 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.”
