A Woman's Secret
There was once a man and woman who had been married for more than 60 years.
They had shared everything. They had talked about everything. They had kept

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
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 dolls, but what about all of this
money? Where did it come from?"
"Oh," she said, "that's the money I made from selling all the dolls..."
