I've posted before that we bought an old house that needed a lot of work. We did the work and we're moving into it, tonight will be our first night in the new house. My friend Cathy has been there everyday for 10 days now helping me set up and unpack. I'm just amazed. It's been hard for me because I'm not 100 percent, and neither is she, she has a bad back too yet she worked as hard, if not harder, alongside me. You don't meet people like that too often in this world. She bought me groceries for our empty fridge and gave me $50 to get some Home Depot items we needed. I tried to protest six ways to Sunday yet she refused to let me say no. I just can't believe there are people like her in this world. I'd do the same thing for someone else but I've never had anyone in my life (other than my own mother) who would do that for me. We both have special needs kids and she's a single mother of three. I need to find a way to repay her for, if there's a way. Any ideas anyone?

She absolutely loves sports, including the Orlando Magic. MaybeI could get her tickets to a game. She never does anything special for herself either, she mainly wears sweats and doesn't wear makeup or or anything else. I could treat her to a spa day maybe. I don't to gather a few suggestions.

I would think that in this situation, you could sit down and write a thank you letter to her and specifically mention how much what she has done has meant to you. You could also include a Gift Certificate or a Visa Gift Card (whatever you can afford), to a favorite restaurant, or perhaps a mini gift basket that would include a DVD (movie that she hasn't seen), microwave popcorn, a few cans of pop or bottles of water, etc...

You get the idea. Really the hand written thank you letter is what she would appreciate the most.

What about just inviting her over to a nice dinner in your new home?

I think the day at the spa would be wonderful. I'm sure she would enjoy a good massage.
