Hi Everybody, and “Happy Mother’s Day Week”
Of course I am thinking about women this week, especially Mothers. Since I have
shops on Etsy, I am inclined to give my attention to all the Mother Shop Owners.
You manage the home, the husband, the kids, the job, the shop, etc. etc. and my
hat is off to you.
Some of you opened your shops because it was a hobby that kept growing and
started taking over your house. Some of you opened a shop out of boredom and
just wanted something to do while the rest of the world fought traffic five days a
week. Well, believe it or not, some of us just opened our shop to Make Our Own
Now for those of you who don’t fall into any of those categories here is a little
story just for you entitled “The Obedient Wife” by Unknown Author.
Once upon a time…………..There was a man who had worked all of his life, had saved
all of his money, and was a real miser when it came to his money. Just before he
died, he said to his wife, “When I die, I want you to take all my money and put it in
the casket with me. I want to take my money to the afterlife with me.”
And so he got his wife to promise him with all of her heart that when he died, she
would put all of the money in the casket with him.
Well, he died. He was stretched out in the casket, his wife was sitting there in
black, and her friend was sitting next to her. When the ceremony was over, just
before the undertakers got ready to close the casket, the wife said, “Wait just a
She walked up to the casket with a box in her hand and put it in beside her
husband. Then the undertakers locked the casket down and rolled it away.
So her friend said, “Girl, I KNOW you weren’t fool enough to put all that money in
there with your husband.” The loyal wife replied, “Listen, I’m a Christian. I can’t
go back on my word. I promised him that I was going to put that money in that
casket with him.”
You mean to tell me you put all that money in the casket with him!!!?
“I sure did,” said the wife. “I got it all together, put it into my account and wrote
him a check. If he can cash it, he can spend it.”
