Domestic bliss - sweaters and arguments...


A couple lived for many years together... a long life, fulfilling and happy.
During this time, the wife kept a metal box which she told the husband never to open, and he dutifully obeyed. One day after almost sixty years of marriage, as the wife lay on her deathbed, she called the husband over, feeling it was time he knew what was in the box.

He brought it over and opened it for her. Inside the box, there was a couple of knitted sweaters, and a big wad of cash, worth almost $100 000.

The wife then explained, that before they were married, the grandmother of the wife had advised her, that whenever she felt angry with the husband, she should knit a sweater...

At this point, the husband smiled proudly and in his heart, he was glad that she was only angry with him only twice.

He nodded, told her he understood what the sweaters were about, and asked about the big pile of money...

She replied "oh, that the money I got from selling all the other sweaters.."

Married life isn't about no quarrels, but how we make it work and even if occasionally, life is as sour as lemonades, we just take the squeeze and make lemonades...

Make sweaters, not war.. keep warm, stay in love...

Amen
