There are many presents we can give to the people we love.  When we turn on the television or plug into the internet, there are hundreds of gift giving suggestions.  But there are very special gifts we can give without spending a dime.

The gift of our full attention is perhaps the best gift we can give to someone we love.

We can listen to them fully.  We can listen without judgment or criticism.  We can listen with an open heart and an open mind.  We can allow those we love to choose their own experiences.  We can love them even when we do not agree with them.  We can just listen.  We can just be there.

Our full attention is a beautiful gift.
