1.The Gift of Personal Presence: In sickness, joy or sorrow, nothing means more to others than your personal expression of sympathy or congratulations.  An email doesn’t cut it – a phone call is better, but being there with the person is the best.

The Gift of Inspiration:  Plant positive seeds of courage and action into everyone you meet.

Encourage those around us to be the best they can be.

3. The Gift of Gratitude: Always say “Thank you” to the ones who serve you, no matter how small that service may be. Say it with sincerity and meaning.

4. The Gift of Praise:  Compliment people on a job well done, especially in front of others.  Let them know that they made a difference.

5. Gift of Attention:  When being spoken to, listen attentively.   If the words are directed at you, look the other person squarely in the eye.

6. The Gift of Concession:  At the right moment and with sincerity, apologize.  You can add

“I am sorry, you’re right.”  if not, you can add, “Sorry for being so vocal, I just want to acknowledge that we both have good but differing points of view.”

7. The Gift of Consideration:  Putting yourself in the other person’s shoes, allows you to

have empathy and a different point of view.

Being Thankful for…….ability to see

ability to hear

ability to talk

ability to walk


    Being grateful for……, clothing, shelter, safe-living, job, loved ones

Children in the world:

Some kids go home and ask  “What’s for dinner?”

Other kids go home and ask, “Is there any dinner?”

Good Quote:

“Be not afraid of life.

Believe that life is worth living,

and your belief will help create the fact.”

(William James)
