Santa turned to me and said, the one condition is this, before we speed off, tell me of something you believe that seems unbelievable. Something you believe so strongly that no contrary view can penetrate. A belief that can't be broken and time and time again keeps proving to you how real it is. Then imagine your life without this belief.
He ended by saying, if you even think you might be wrong about this belief you share with me then come with me. Tonight I will bring hope of a better tomorrow to so many. Some will try to spy the sled and count its gifts. Because they have no other beliefs to fall back on, they don't dare ask your type of questions. But many more will be content in the reminder that it is O.K. to throw me a wink and a nod and then reserve their heart for what they truly believe!
And with that I stepped down from that sled and walked away with a wink and a nod back toward St. Nick. Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night.
