Impossible. How to Get Rich and Remain Married.

SHI Symbol - SHoe Box

To those of us who love little shoe boxes, and who happen to be in a relationship – you could actually be quite rich – did I hear you say it was time for a spring clean???



 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 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 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;
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 know how to crochet.

Married - and becoming Rich

  1. What a funny but inspirational story! I thought the moral was going to be that she was rich when they got married but didn’t want her money to spoil things. I love a surprise ending. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Love a good story… also. I had a good laugh… I just check out the SHI Symbol tag and also love that idea… Single Happy Interested. I sure am and we all know it is a numbers game:)

  3. Gigantism says : I absolutely agree with this !
