  • No. I would remind her of the $400 worth of jewelry she can sell for food and house payment.

  • I would tell her how happy I am that things are better and she will not be needing help any more and move on, if she asks again say sorry you are not able.

  • I agree, bring up casually or the next time she's bragging about spending money, that you noticed things were looking up for her financially.

  • I would ask her how she is doing. Some people go off spending money like they have a lot more coming in when they get depressed.
