What’s On Your Shopping List?
Tuesday Oct 20th, 2020
If you’re looking for great gift ideas…
THE GIFT OF LISTENING: But, you must really listen. No interrupting, no daydreaming, no planning your response. Just listen.
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,” “You did a super job” or, “That was a wonderful meal” can make someone’s day.
THE GIFT OF A FAVOUR: Every day, go out of your way to do something kind.
THE GIFT OF SOLITUDE: There are times when we want nothing more 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. It’s not that hard to smile and say “Hello” or “Thank You.”
This holiday season, may you give and receive these gifts and more.
