    Ten Priceless Gifts

    1. The gift of listening...

    Listen to someone in need. Really listen. No
    interrupting, no daydreaming, no planning your
    responses. Just listen.

    2. The gift of affection...

    Be generous with your hugs, kisses and gentle squeezes
    of the hand. Let these tiny actions demonstrate the
    love inside of 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.

    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 might feel they are
    being taken for granted.

    6. The gift of a favor...

    Help with the dishes or run an errand. Save someone
    some steps, or perform a random act of kindness without
    asking for anything in return.

    7. The gift of leaving alone...

    There are times in our lives when we want nothing more
    than to be left alone. Become sensitive to those times
    and give solitude.

    8. The gift of a cheerful disposition...

    Be cheerful around those you love. Greet someone with a
    smile.

    9. The gift of a game...

    Offer to play your loved one's 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.

    These are most expensive gifts of the life of any human being. These gifts can never be given they must be taken.

    Be careful with this one if you are married to an engineer. They don't like anything to be even slightly random. Messes things up.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
