    THE SHOEBOX
    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 knitted 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 knit 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 dolls, 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 knit!:rotfl

    Hello Viji
    Nice story. First i thought........Han? in 60 yrs of married life, she was angry with him only twice? must be a very patient woman (unlike me :rotfl)
    then came the twist in the tale.:)

    The 'feather in the cap' is the prayer :rotfl
