God bless that sweet lady. I Hate that happened. She probably had felt so happy that she was able to do that, then to have it get lost or stolen had to have been a blow to her.My mother-in-law, bless her heart, sent my husband and I a birthday card each. His birthday is the day after mine. She sent us each some money. I don't know why. She hasn't been able to do anything like that in years. She has 7 children. I can't count the grands and the great-grands, too many. She sends them 5.00 dollars until they reach the age of 18.
She also sent a thank-you card when she sent the birthday cards. The thank-you card was for the entertainment and her birthday gift (a gown I bought her in February) when she and her two oldest daughters visited in February. I think she sent the money because she knew I was depressed about my oldest boy and wanted us to go out or get out. She said as much or something to that effect.
Well, those cards never made it, none of them. I felt so bad to tell her that. I guess U.S. Post Office lost them, delivered them to the wrong address, or someone is stealing the mail. It bothers me because to her it was a lot of money. It's a lot of money to me for that matter, but she sent it and she's 88 years old. I hope whoever got it enjoyed it and karma comes by and bites them where the sun doesn't shine.
Maybe it will still come--maybe it just got sent to the wrong state or something.
