: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 in making a living for their family.
> The Lord dipped His hand into the water and pulled up a golden thimble set
> 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.
> Some 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 George Clooney. "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 George Clooney, you would have come up with Brad
> Pitt. Then if I said 'no' to him, you would have come up with my husband. Had I

> why I said 'yes' to George Clooney.
> And so the Lord let her keep him.
> The moral of this story is: Whenever a woman lies, it's for a good and
> honorable reason, and in the best interest of others. That's our story, and
