I know my dad & SM are hurting for money right now. Yesterday I went for a visit to take my dad some cold medicine & they gave me my B-day card w/ a check for $25.00 in it. We aren't doing so great either, but we're not doing as bad as they are. I'm very tempted to NOT cash the check. I'd rather my dad use it for medical bills or a co-pay to the Dr. But I also don't want to hurt their feelings by suggesting they can't afford a gift for me. What do you think?

If you don't cash it they will probably be insulted. If you don't cash it they may have already put that money aside & they will be waiting to cover that amount & scrimp in another area. So, I would do what Butterfly said & cash it & buy them groceries with it. Wait a few weeks & surprise them.
