    Seven Gifts To Give To A Friend
    - By Catherine Pulsifer

    The month of April is a month that has many birthdays for my family and friends. What gifts would I get? As I was reading some quotes, I found myself wishing I could give these gifts that I cannot buy.

    The seven gifts I would love to give to my family and friends:

    1. The Gift of Love

    May you find love in your family and your friends. And may you share the love you have to give. When you share your love, it comes back to you in many forms.

    "Love is a fruit in season at all times, and within the reach of every hand." - Mother Teresa

    "To live a little, you've got to love a whole lot. Love turns the ordinary into the extraordinary." - Author Unknown

    2. The Gift of Laughter

    May laughter fill your home, relieve your stress, and strengthen your friendships. Do not let a day go buy without laughing; it is good for your health.

    "Laughter is a tranquilizer with no side effects."
    - Arnold Glasow

    "Let there be more joy and laughter in your living."
    - Eileen Caddy

    3. The Gift of Living Each Day to The Fullest

    Every day is a gift, and may you use this gift by living life to the fullest. You will never have this day again. What will you do with it?

    "Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. And today? Today is a gift. That's why we call it the present."
    - Babatunde Olatunji

    "There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle."
    - Albert Einstein

    4. The Gift of Not Worrying

    May your days be worry-free. If you find yourself worrying about something then fix it. If it is beyond your control, then there is no sense in worrying about it. 90% of what you worry about will never happen, so why worry!

    "I've seen many troubles in my time, only half of which ever came true." - Mark Twain

    "When I look back on all the worries I remember the story of the old man who said on his deathbed that he had a lot of trouble in his life, most of which never happened."
    - Sir Winston Churchill

    5. The Gift of Positive Thinking

    May you find the good in all situations, even if you have to look for it - look because it is there. No matter what happens in your life, find the good. Your life will be a happier one.

    Every problem has a gift for you in its hands. - Richard Bach

    "There are always flowers for those who want to see them." - Henri Matisse

    6. The Gift of Balance in Your Life

    May you find the balance of life, time for work but also time for play. Too much of one thing ends up creating stress that no one needs in their life.

    "Live a balanced life - learn some and think some and draw and paint and sing and dance and play and work every day some." - Robert Fulghum

    In fact, everyone should take time out once in a while to recharge and revitalize their energy. The key is to have a balanced life."
    - Michael Lee, CPA

    7. The Gift of Goal Setting

    May all your dreams turn into goals. Goals will help you accomplish things you may have thought impossible.

    "If you have a goal in life that takes a lot of energy, that requires a lot of work, that incurs a great deal of interest and that is a challenge to you, you will always look forward to waking up to see what the new day brings."
    - Susan Polis Schultz

    "Goals determine what you're going to be." - Julius Erving


    "Welcome every morning with a smile.
    Look on the new day as another special gift from your Creator.
    Another golden opportunity to complete what you were unable to finish yesterday."

    - Og Mandino
