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.
