Happy Friday! This week I wanted to share a very touching story about doilies.
An older couple who had been married for fifty years decided that it was time to downsize as they approached retirement. As they were packing things up, the husband came across a shoe-box back in the corner of a shelf in the closet. When he opened it, he was surprised to find two 2 doilies and three large bundles of twenty-dollar bills. He took the shoe-box to his wife and asked her if she knew about the box.
She gave him a sheepish smile and told him about some advice she had received from her Mother before they had gotten married. She said that her Mother had told that she should crochet a doily every time that she got mad at her husband instead of getting into an argument.
The husband was quite touched thinking about all the good and bad times they had shared over the last fifty years and that his lovely wife had only been mad twice.
“What about the three bundles of twenty-dollar bills?” he asked. “Oh that,” she replied, “is the money I made from selling the doilies.”
