10 Gifts for a Happy New Year

1. The Gift of Listening...
Try listening to someone in need. And you must really listen. No interrupting, no daydreaming, no planning your responses. Just listen.

2. The Gift of Signs of Affection...
Be generous with your hugs, kisses and gentle squeezes of the hand. Let these tiny actions demonstrate the love inside you.

3. The Gift of a Note...
It can be as simple as "I Love You" or as creative as a sonnet. Put your notes where they will surprise your loved ones and friends.

4. The Gift of Laughter...
Just cut out a cartoon, save a clever article. Your gift will say, "I love to laugh with you."

5. The Gift of a Compliment...
A simple "You look good in blue" or "Good supper" can be of greatest value to those who may feel they are being taken for granted.

6. The Gift of a Favor...
Help with the dishes, run an errand, etc...

7. The Gift of Leaving Alone...
There are times in our lives when we want nothing better than to be left alone. Become more sensitive to those times and give solitude.

8. The Gift of a Cheerful Disposition...
Try to be cheerful around those around you.

9. The Gift of a Game...
Offer to play your loved ones favorite game. Even if you lose, you'll be a winner.

10. The Gift of Prayer...
Pray for your loved ones and let them know you pray for them.
