I just had a friend email this story and I love it and thought I would share it. *mods I hope this is in the right spot *sorry* if it isnt*......








A man and woman had been married for more than 60 years.

They had shared everything. They had talked about everything.

They had kept no secrets from each other except that the little

Old woman had a shoe box in the top of her closet that she had

Cautioned her husband never to open or ask her about.



For all of these years, he had never thought about the box, but

One day the little old woman got very sick and the doctor said

She would not recover.

In trying to sort out their affairs, the little old man took

Down the shoe box and took it to his wife's bedside.

She agreed that it was time that he should know what was

In the box. When he opened it, he found two crocheted dolls

And a stack of money totaling $95,000.

He asked her about the contents.

'When we were to be married,' she said, ' my grandmother told me

The secret of a happy marriage was to never argue. She told me that

If I ever got angry with you, I should just keep quiet and crochet a doll.'

The little old man was so moved; he had to fight back tears. Only two

Precious dolls were in the box. She had only been angry with him two

Times in all those years of living and loving. He almost burst with


'Honey,' he said, 'that explains the doll, but what about all of this money?

Where did it come from?'

'Oh,' she said, 'that's the money I made from selling the dolls.'



A Prayer...

Dear Lord, I pray for Wisdom to understand my man;

Love to forgive him; And Patience for his moods;

Because Lord, if I pray for Strength, I'll beat him to death,

Because I don't have time to crochet

There are a few pics that are ment to go with this but it wont load them. So if you want the full email pm me.....

Thanks for the laugh - I really needed it today. I must say I laughed SO HARD it brought tears to my eyes.

I can very well see me as that little old lady. I love my husband, but at times he can be such a pain. Great prayer too !!!!

Thanks for sharing.

:ty for the :rofl. I have heard a slightly different version of this tale that I found very, very funny also. The older couple is a minister and his wife who have been married for a long time. In the box she had 2 eggs and a bunch of money. When the husband/minister asked about the eggs she told him the eggs represented a bad sermon he had preached. He thought that was good for all the years they were married that he only preached 2 bad sermons. Then he asked about the money. The wife told him that when ever she got a dozen eggs she would sell the eggs. The reason I found this version so funny is my husband is a minister. But he worked in the publishing of religious materials instead of pastoring a church. Again, :ty for the :rofl. :manyheart
