An excellent kind of closure

Remember about a year ago, when I lent (gave) my New York mom and dad $6000?

Today, they paid me back in full.  The check came in a card that just said "We love you."

I don't care about the money; I never expected to see it again anyway.  I know what changed to make it possible for them to repay me, though. I hope it will keep them solvent for the rest of their lives.

That is a nice surprise. I usually don't let people borrow. but when I do, like you, I don't expect it back. You have to have that mind set if you are going to give anything really. :) Good to hear from you. :)

That is really wonderful.

That's awesome news! I'm a big believe that what goes around comes around, not always directly but in the end.

Fantastic to hear; it's always a pleasant surprise to get money repaid that we weren't expected. I'm pretty sure my mother has given up on getting back the money she's loaned me, but I still intend to repay everything she has given to me.

Congratulations! As for the change, let me guess: Their daugther finally got herself a job? (If I remember this correctly.)

I forgot to ask, does this mean the apartment they inherited finally sold? I don't expect the daughter to have found job, so just guessing here...and anyway, it's still wonderful you went with your gut, gave the money and now have it back. Makes me smile. :)

Thanks, everyone . . . yes, the apartment finally sold!

Unfortunately, my New York mom and dad are now spending like drunken sailors, and Grifter (their adult daughter) has amped up her leeching. It looks like they're headed for trouble all over again, only this time there isn't a backup plan.
