    A man and woman had been married for more than 60 years. They'd

    shared everything. They'd talked about everything. They'd 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 it was time 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


    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."
