I love and appreciate you all. And MISS YOU!

THE GIFT OF LISTENING . . . But
you must REALLY listen. No interrupting, no daydreaming, no planning your

THE GIFT OF AFFECTION . . . Be
generous with appropriate hugs, kisses, pats on the back and handholds. Let

THE GIFT OF A CHEERFUL
DISPOSITION . . . The easiest way to feel good is to extend a kind word to
someone, really it's not that hard to say, "Hello" or "Thank You".
