“The only true gift is a portion of yourself.”  

~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Often the best thing we can do for a friend or family member is to spend time with them and listen.  Stop for a moment from your busy schedule and frenetic activities and focus on someone important to you.  Ask them how they are doing, or to tell you about an accomplishment they are proud of or something they aspire to.  And then listen.  Just listen.
