We were walking through a department store. It was a few days before Christmas and I was feeling rather tired and stressed. I did all of my Christmas shopping the week before, or at least I thought. That morning I found out that we were having another guest for Christmas dinner. I wasn't ready for it and I needed to find him a gift.

My daughter, 10 years old at the time, asked if we could go to toys. I wasn't enthusiastic but complied. When we got to toys, she went to dolls. I hadn't seen her touch a doll in a while but she picked one up and asked, "Can we get this?" "No, but maybe Santa will get it for you," I said. "I want it now!" she said. I continued to say no as she continued to beg for it. I know itís not good parenting, but being so tired, I gave in. "Fine! Put it in the cart." She thanked me and I felt like a bad mother being such a pushover.

She then told me she need wrapping paper too. I was suddenly confused. "Why do you need wrapping paper right now?" I asked. She then held up a little folded tag. I picked up the tag and started to read it.

"I want to put it under the tree," she responded. The tag said "baby doll-Cathryn" My daughter had picked a tag off the charity gift tree at the front of the store without my knowledge. She was getting the doll for someone she'd never even met before. I leaned down and hugged my daughter. The one that should be teaching me how to be a more giving person at times. I was all too caught up in my being tired and didnít even notice. We wrapped the present together, placed it under the tree together and this memory is a gift we both cherish!
