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 locked chest on 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 chest,
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 chest and
took it to his wife's bedside. She agreed that it was time that he should know
what was in the chest. When he opened it, he found two crocheted
dolls and a stack of money totalling $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 crochet a doll.'
The little old man was so moved; he had to fight back tears.
Only two Precious dolls were in the chest. 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 other dolls.'
