    Posted: 12 February 2007 at 2:19am

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  justkeep 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."

===================================================

I just realized that my font was too small, I apologize for that.

 Just think, if it weren't for marriage, men would go through life thinking they had no faults at all.

Men like to ask you for advice but when you gave your opinion they expain to you why theirs is in any case better.

So whenever my husband ask my suggestion I don't even give my opinion I just say yes your idea is good.

haha agree?

Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing , you will be successfull

Amah:

Lucky old man, so far the story goes!

I got direction in my golden years and guess what now we can't find our way out of the hole we ended up in!
