December 21

Well, here we are, getting down to the wire. The list has been checked twice, presents have been made and wrapped. All the goodies have been made and packaged. The reindeer are busting at the gate to hit the air AND my sleigh is still in pieces!! I was over to see Sharati this morning and there all over the garage was my sleigh, in pieces. I asked her what was taking her so long, that I was starting to get nervous. Sharati said “Santa, dear Santa, I promise you it will be ready for the flight. I am just making sure that everything is perfect.” I said to Sharati, “OK, I trust you, I’m just nervous.” I walked away from the garage shaking my head.

I spent most of my day answering letters and checking in on kids through the snow globe and all I can do is smile. It is so heart warming to see so many people come together and enjoy the holiday. Communities having celebrations and individuals spreading the joy and love.

After spending some time sending letters out I decided to take Mrs. Claus for a lovely walk in the snow. We walked and talked, held hands just like we did centuries ago. Walking in the moonlight just illuminated her face. Such a beautiful woman, I am a lucky man. As we walked on, the inevitable had to happen. Running up to me and Mrs. Claus was Elf Nutcracker saying “Santa….Santa…oh my, oh my, great goodness.” I looked at Nutcracker and asked “What is the matter?” Nutcracker responded with “It’s Sharati…….she hurt her hand and cannot finish your sleigh. Tersa is attending to her right now and Tersa said that Sharati will not be able to use her hand for at least a week!”

At this moment the fear I had of not having the sleigh together came to light. I went back into town and into the garage. The sleigh was only half done and it is needed in 2 days! I headed over to the clinic to see Sharati’s hand bandaged up. I asked what had happened and Sharati said “I was putting on a strut and the sleigh fell on my hand. Tersa said there are no breaks in it but it is bruised really badly.” I told her I would be back in the morning to check on her and went back to my study.

Now here I am and the question is “How am I going to make the flight on Christmas Eve without a sleigh?” It is time for me to say goodnight my darlings, it is going to be a long night.
