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 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 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 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 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 have the freaking time to crochet.

Good morning it!

I challenge anyone to say they have never had the need to crochet:)

Thanks for the super start.

Thank you for doing the start today, I just loved that story, thought it was going to be a tearjerker, but ended up laughing - what a good way for me to start my day with a smile on my face.
Hope you are smiling too - take care and catch you later

I hate it when people forward bogus warnings...but this one is real, and it's important. So please send this warning to everyone on your e-mail list:

If someone comes to your front door saying they are conducting a survey on deer ticks and asks you to take your clothes off and dance around with your arms up, DO NOT DO IT!! IT IS A SCAM; they only want to see you naked.

I wish I'd gotten this yesterday.

I feel so stupid now.

Out of Time by Deborah Truscott

Kathleen Findlay is married to a cad, her mother is driving her crazy and her life is falling apart. Then her uncle dies, leaving her the family's Revolutionary-era home and, she believes, an escape from her chaotic marriage. But one afternoon, while searching for a rake, she discovers a man in her garden shed - and a free fall through the centuries.

As her life spins wildly out of control, Kathleen finds her heart and in the process, her own place in time.

Love in a Time of War by Suzanne Elizabeth Anderson

Author's Note: For fans of romance and 'happily-ever-after'...LOVE IN A TIME OF WAR is a beautiful re-imagining of my first novel, Mrs. Tuesday's Departure, with new scenes and an entirely new ending.

In this emotionally powerful WWII drama, children's book writer Natalie Lucas discovers the many faces of love as she helps her beloved niece Mila escape the approaching Nazi menace in Hungary.
Natalie's twin sister, the celebrated poet and professor, Anna Lucas, has succumbed to early-onset dementia, making the situation even more unstable for Natalie and Mila. Natalie and Anna's personal and professional relationship provides an interesting subplot whch focuses on the foundations of sisterly love.
In the meantime, surrounded by violence and the threat of capture, Natalie must find a safe way out of the country for Mila. She eventually turns to her teenage sweetheart, Deszo, a Professor whom she rejected in order to marry her true love, Max.
The past love triangle between Deszo, Natalie and Anna adds further complications; however, Deszo may provide Mila with her only chance of escape. As Natalie and Deszo are thrown together by their mission to save Mila, their love for one another is re-ignighted.
After the Nazis learn of Deszo's assistance to the Jews, he and Natalie are brutally interrogated by a Nazi officer who has been following their activities, and their lives are in danger. After many doubts as to who in their community is friend or foe, the novel culminates with a heart-wrenching conclusion which provokes questions of loyalty, family and above all--faith.
NOTE FROM SUZANNE: Love in a Time of War is a re-imagining of my first novel, Mrs. Tuesday's Departure. How did this happen? As I was working with my editor on the second edition of Mrs. Tuesday, we began asking 'what-if' questions about the relationship between Natalie and Deszo. LOVE as the title suggests contains both a romance and the happy ending that readers told me they wanted. It is with great happiness that I am able to provide both in this story.

Does anyone have any good suggestions for free vegetable gardening books (or even low-priced ones)? My boys got really excited this year about the idea of doing a garden and I know next to nothing about it. It's the first time I've seen my kids excited about vegetables so I want to at least give it a try.

not such a new mom,

I hope you have a truly wonderful day today, Happy birthday.

I wish I could help. There have been so many posted which I have never picked up so I think someone might be able to help.

The kids will love seeing their vegetables grow, and they might even like eating them if they don't like vegetables now:)
