Retirement Yenta knows this: there are a LOT of people around her who love her very much, and she in return loves them right back. There are times when life throws you a curve ball or two (or four) and those people who love you will gather around you and show you their support. To these people, RY says, Thank You.
Now believe your dear Yenta, it’s not all about take, but about giving too. Your dear Yenta thinks one should be there for your friends when they need you. Be that in the form of lending an ear to listen, a shoulder to cry on, or even schtupping. Woah. That’s right, dear Readers, your little Yenta said schtupping. Now, settle down, little ones, RY was not talking about the slang meaning of this dear Yiddish term…she’s talking about the meaning as it was back when she was but a wee little Yenta: giving money.
With this in mind, Retirement Yenta says: When a friend is in need, do a good deed. It’s YOUR job to listen, love, laugh, cry, support, hug, and debug. Pay it forward and receive it back.
