After the big night . . .

It was the year 2000 when I created this Santa bear and took this photo for my Christmas card. I was showing him to my sister and she said, “He’s tuckered out.” It was the perfect description for him. This is Santa after his big night traveling the world delivering gifts. And even Santa keeps the good company of bears. The elves have gone off on a vacation to the Caribbean and Mrs. Claus has put a closed sign on her kitchen. The mail will arrive tomorrow bringing a postcard from his helpers saying, “The weather is here. I wish you were beautiful.” It will also have a bunch of smiley faces at the bottom. Those funny elves must be having a great time. But Santa will be sleeping when the mail is pushed through the slot in his front door. He’s nice and cozy in front of the fire with his two little bears. Life is sweet.

  6. I do believe the last time I looked in a mirror, I looked like that little bear. Thanks for your sweet thoughts and I am slowly on the mend... I will even post on my blog Sunday night if I get things decorated. Happy holidays to you and all the bears! Sharon
