Ep. 11 - The Entrepreneur Before Christmas

Twas the night before Christmas when all through the house 

Not a creature was stirring except for my mouse.

 

The stockings were hung as I spent my time clicking with care 

In hopes that somehow the presents could still make it there.  

 

 

My “busy” schedule had been out of control 

Preparing for Christmas had really not taken ahold.

 

The children were nestled all snug in their beds

The presents were not purchased - leaving noise in my head.  

 

I debated about whether to have a super tall nightcap.

Honestly - all I really wanted was a long winters nap.  

 

When out on the lawn there came the sound of some chatter 

I rose from my computer to see what was the matter. 

 

Away to the window I went in a dash, 

Tore open the shutters and made my cell phone flash.

The moon shined brightly on the new fallen snow.

And suddenly I didn’t care about my previous stress and woe.

 

Falling from the sky with a sound only I could hear

Was the relief I needed at this time of year.  

 

It came in a form of reindeer leading a sleigh 

With a little old driver who was cruising my way. 

 

Suddenly I knew in a quick

This little old guy must be St. Nick! 

 

Let’s face it, no one else was working tonight 

This could be my answer to make everything right.  

 

He whistled and shouted and called his reindeers by name:

 

Now, Dasher! Now Dancer! Now, Prancer and Vixen!  

On Comet! On Cupid! On Donder and Blitzen!

 

To the top of that porch!  To the top of the Wall!  

To this entrepreneurs house where there is no presents at all!

 

I stood there just thinking was I dreaming this all

Or had I just entered some crazy online mall!

 

And then in a twinkling right there on my roof 

stood the actual prancing and pawing of each reindeers hoof.  

 

And down the chimney St. Nicholas came

And my life since that moment has not been the same.

 

It started with a bundle of presents he had flung on his back

That began to remove my deep sense of lack.

 

Oh his eyes how they twinkled!  His dimples, how merry! 

His cheeks were like roses, his nose like a cherry!

 

He knew just the magic I needed to get past my fear

After all, it had been one hell of a year.

 

My business needed me in so many ways

To help me help others get through their darkest days.

 

With a wink of his eye, and a twist of his head,

Suddenly I felt peace and as I knew I had nothing to dread.

 

He spoke not a word and was calm as could be 

as he filled up our stockings with such joyful glee.

And laying his finger aside of his nose,

He gave me a nod and up the chimney he rose.

 

My heart had been filled in the quiet of the full moon sky

I was glowing with belief and let out a sigh.

 

He exclaimed with joy as he drove out of sight – 

Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!
