A man and woman had been married for more than 60 years. They hadshared everything. They had talked about everything. They had kept no secrets from each other except that the little old woman had a shoebox 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 oneday 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 moneytotaling $95,000. He asked her about the contents . "When we were to be married," shesaid, " 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 happiness."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."
The 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 know how to crochet.

Answers to Questions....

Hey, I still don't know how to answer questions that people ask me on my blog, so I will just blog them. Let's see....all the way back to Halloween, the costumes came from Old Navy-$13 each. Dora was never recovered, but our toilet is currently working. Carly's dog is named Cookie. Talon opened the door to pee outside (that's a story all its own, Nanny 911 where are you) seeing Cookie sitting on the porch was too much for him to resist. He was very proud of himself. Cookie is a purebred, inbred (brother and sister) blue heeler-hence his border collie look. (must of come from his gggggrandfather) I would have loved one of your puppies Bonnie, I was hoping Mike would bring one home. Cookie was the last puppy of one of Carly's friends; Cookie's sister lives two doors down. (= I think that about sums it up. Blogging is fun, I can't always post a comment on everyone elses though. Still trying to figure that one out.
