Brighten up someone's day by giving a simple gift of a freshly picked flower from your yard or with permission from your neighbor's garden. If you ask nicely and explain your intention, many neighbors with flower gardens will be happy to share their flowers with you especially if you ask first. Gift giving is important to building loving and lasting friendships. It also makes the giver of the gift happy as well as the receiver. Gifts do not have to be expensive but they must come from the heart.
