This week’s Rewarding Moment comes from Diane Kleiman who’s been a member since October 2008 after learning about MyPoints via an email.
Her favorite ways to earn are Surveys and Watch.
This is her story:
“I was a practicing lawyer until about a year ago. I visited my mom and realized she needed someone to be with her all the time.
My older sister wanted nothing to do with it. But since that visit a year and a half ago, I never left. I do EVERYTHING for my mom, shopping, cooking nutritious, well balanced, delicious meals daily, cleaning, making and taking her to doctor appointments, sometimes 2-3 times a week, keep her spirits up, do activities that will stimulate her brain.
I constantly worry about money as I pay the monthly maintenance for both her apartment & mine,all the food, every need or desire she wants including hair, make up, etc.
I make sure she has all the foods she loves but with prices so high, there is often not enough food for the both of us so I say I’m not hungry so she can eat to her heart’s content. I’m almost 5 feet 8 inches tall & since Feb, 2021, my weight has dropped from 130 pounds to 86 pounds.
I’ve been selling everything I own to pay for these expenses but that’s fine as I’ve been blessed with the best parents in the world who did everything for my sister & me. This has taught me that things can always be replaced but people can’t.
Your site has given me the chance to try to earn Gift Cards which helps a great deal to pay for things for mom […and] I’m grateful and most appreciative that… they will help out a lot in buying for mom. You are angels.”
Thanks, Diane! But we think YOU are the angel for taking such good care of your Mom. In appreciation for sharing your story, we’ve added 1,500 Points to your account.
