Jenny borrowed $20 from me on Monday at the Boston Marathon (she had no cash to buy her son a Boston Strong t-shirt). I got this $20 bill in the mail today from her in a nice card.
It reminded me of a story my parents used to tell about when they were a young married couple with young kids. My dad was a school teacher and sometimes when money got tight before pay day my parents would call our friends the Jensens (they lived in LaCrescenta and Joe was also a school teacher) and ask to borrow $20. Joe and Gloria would mail a $20 bill to my parents and after payday my parents would mail a $20 bill back to them. And sometimes the Jensens would call to borrow $20 before payday. I like this nice story about friendship.
