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 at 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 that 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 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;
I pray for Love to forgive him;
And I pray for Patience for his moods;
Because Lord, if I pray for Strength,
I'll beat him to death.

Aww, this is really a rarity in this day and age... :)

  1. At the identical time, they can't prosecute foreign on line casino operators and solely block their sites. Players in these nations can't be punished and might gamble at any website they will access. The percentage is worked out by calculating each attainable spin on the virtual reels, which are all equally doubtless, and evaluating cash in vs. cash out to make each of those spins. The on line casino has sufficient of a bankroll to ride the variance out, and that is how they profit.
