  42. Talk about your views on something in a civil way, even if you disagree.
  43. Remember the small things about them.
  44. Notice when they aren’t feeling theirself.
  45. Do something you enjoyed as a child together.
  46. Trust them with secrets.
  47. Keep your promises to them.
  48. Pack a note with their lunch, or just leave nice notes for them in random places.
  49. Make time for them in your day.
  50. Send them an email/text when you’re thinking about them.

That’s it for this post. Go out and show someone that you care today. If I missed anything, be sure to put it in the comments!
