Default THE SEAMSTRESS

One day, when a seamstress was sewing, while sitting close to a river, her
thimble fell into the river. When she cried out, the Lord appeared and
asked, "My dear child, why are you crying?"

The seamstress replied that her thimble had fallen into the water and that
she needed it to help her husband make a living for their family. The Lord
dipped His hand into the water and pulled up a golden thimble, ringed with
pearls. "Is this your thimble?" the Lord asked.



The seamstress replied, "No."



The Lord again dipped into the river. He held out a silver thimble ringed
with sapphires. "Is this your thimble?" the Lord asked.



Again, the seamstress replied, "No."

The Lord reached down again and came up with a leather thimble. "Is this
your thimble?" the Lord asked.



The seamstress replied,? "Yes."

The Lord was pleased with the woman's honesty and gave her all three
thimbles to keep, and the seamstress went home happy.



Many years later, the seamstress was walking with her husband along the
riverbank, and her husband fell into the river and disappeared under the
water. When she cried out, the Lord again appeared and asked her, "Why are
you crying?"


"Oh Lord, my husband has fallen into the river!" The Lord went down into the
water and came up with Mel Gibson.



"Is this your husband?"? the Lord asked.



"Yes!" cried the seamstress.



The Lord was furious. "You lied! That is an untruth!"



The seamstress replied, "Oh, forgive me, my Lord. "It is a misunderstanding.
You see, if I had said 'no' to Mel Gibson, you would have come up with Tom
Cruise. Then if I said 'no' to him, you would have come up with my husband.
Had I then said 'yes,' you would have given me all three. Lord, I'm not
in the best of health and would not be able to take care of all three
husbands, so THAT'S why I said 'yes' to Mel Gibson."

The moral of this story is: Whenever a woman lies, it's for a good and
honorable reason, and in the best interest of all concerned.



That's our story, and we're sticking to it!
