Celebrate and share your love this holiday season

Cozad, Neb.

Here are some special gifts that you can give:

The Gift of a Cheerful Disposition: Be cheerful around your loved ones. No feeling sorry for yourself, no nasty Comments, no pessimistic predictions. Your gift of cheerfulness will be great for all your loved ones and for yourself.

The Gift of a Compliment: Give your loved ones a compliment. A simple “I like the way you smile” or “Great supper, honey” can be of inestimable value to a person who may feel they are taken for granted.

The Gift of Laughter: Just clip a cartoon, a joke, a riddle or save a clever article. Your gift will say, “I love to laugh with you.”

The Gift of Prayer: Don’t forget how valuable a prayer can be. Praying for someone is saying, “You are so special to me that I often talk to God about you.”

The Gift of Listening: One of the greatest things we can do for one another is to listen to him or her. Why not give this gift to someone on your list? Really listen.

The Gift of a Note: Write a note to a loved one. It can be as short as “I love you” or as long as a sonnet. Surprise your loved one, put the note in a lunch box or a purse, maybe in the sock drawer. Though the note may be a surprise the message will not.
