On December 6th, 1911, my mother Georgette Marguerite Marie Rocher was born in Brussels. Upon falling in love with her, my father re-christened her Mahaut, a name now belonging to my granddaughter, Isa Mahaut. Happy birthday Maman, wherever you may be.
On December 6th, 1970, we brought home two-year old Amy, our new daughter, to be a sister to three older brothers. She was certainly the best present that any Saint Nicolas or Santa (she was born on Christmas Day) ever gave me!
On December 6th 2008, a phone call woke me up at 2:37 am that brought back into my life a long, long lost love who shares this day with me.
Merci Saint Nicolas for all these gifts!
