A Bank Savings Account Book

My mother sent me a bank savings account book on the eve of my wedding. There was $1000.00 in it. My mother smiled and said, 'You both are going to deposit some money in it from time to time, when something is worth for memorable. Besides the money, you both will learn that there will be the unlimited happiness as you both grow old together.'

My husband deposited $500.00 twice later on. Once, he was promoted at work. Another time, I got home after a very successful operation. I felt the absolutely warmest at the bottom of my heart. After all, my good health was the priority of his greatest happiness.

Unfortunately, we started fighting a few years later ...

My mother said to me, 'First of all, both of you go spend all the money from your account before the next move!' When we were going for a divorce, I looked into the bank book. I thought on the source of the money. Tears welled up in my eyes because it did accumulated lots of happiness inside. I gave it to him that night. I said, 'Hurry up and go spend all the money before we divorce.'

The next day, he handed the bank book to me with $1000.00 extra more in it.

'This is the first time for me to realize that I'm still very much in love with you, and so I deposited $1000.00' he said. We were reconciled since then.

Today is our 57th wedding anniversary and we still deposit the money into our account whenever there is something worth memorable, even now.

We know we will celebrate our every wedding anniversary until the end of the rainbow ...

Nice experience. I never realize that there is a saving account for happiness.
