Six Gifts That Don't Cost a Cent

So many of the times when I post it is regarding national news or real estate.  Today is Christmas Eve and I am spending the day with 3 of my amazing grandchildren and we are going out to lunch and a movie.  That would be a perfect day for me.  I just received the note below from a friend and thought I would pass it along.  I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas Holiday.

Six Gifts That Don't Cost a Cent

The Gift of Listening...But you must really listen.  Don't interrupt, don't daydream, don't plan your response.  Just listen.

The Gift of Affection...Be generous w/appropriate hugs, kisses, pats on the back.  Let these small actions demonstrate the love you have for family & friends.

The Gift of Laughter...Clip cartoons, share articles & stories.  Your gift will say, "I love to laugh w/you."

The Gift of a Favor...Every day, go out of your way to do something kind.

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.

The Gift of a Compliment...A simple & sincere, "You look great in red,"  "You did a super job," or "That was a wonderful meal" can make someone's day.

Very sweet and very important. Many people forget that Christmas is not only about toys and cashmere sweaters.

Those are the most important gifts of all.  Some have forgotten what a gift really means.
