Not-so-well-off sister

Dear Queenie,

I’m retired and living on my pension. I don’t have any savings and I just barely get by.

My birthday is coming and my sister and her family, who are very well-off financially, have invited me to their house to celebrate and I know they will have gifts for me, but I am embarrassed to go because I can’t afford to do anything for them on their birthdays.

Queenie, what can I do?—Not-so-well-off sister

Dear Sister,

Accept their invitation! Your presence will be a gift.

Also, if you have any kind of a talent, sharing it with them would be a gift. Furthermore, you can give them help around their home and babysit if they have young children.
