She has a son and a daughter who often seem to promise to come over but then, at the last minute, find they have something pressing they need to do like feeding the chickens or doing the laundry! Gosh these youngster know how to make a person feel valued!I'm blessed in that regard. My moved out children stay in touch, in fact I couldn't do it without 2 of my daughters.

If you can't afford to make it a gift, don't give it. I'm so sorry you got scammed.I agree. Make it a gift and you don't have to worry about it causing tension if they can't afford to pay it back. Let the payback be God's "problem." Then if you get it back, it's free money.
