It was the year of 1970 when our youngest daughter, Lisa was three years old. Our three oldest daughters were aged seven, eight and ten. It was just a few days before Christmas and I had all of my 25 Christmas presents wrapped and under the tree. It was Saturday morning around 9 a.m. when my husband and I were still asleep and expected all of our daughters were also sleeping. Lisa woke me standing by my side of the bed, holding up a new doll I had wrapped for her. She said, “Look, mommy.” My first thought was, “How did she know which present was her doll?”

Then it dawned on me. I slowly got up and walked to the living room where all 25 presents were unwrapped. I reprimanded her before I rewrapped them.

Lisa was born on her father’s birthday and is now 51 years old. She has been married to her husband Jeff Whisker for 35 years.
