Not everyone has a sixty-year friendship with Santa Claus, but I did.
Who would have guessed I'd find a life-long best friend sitting in a faded red canvas beach chair fishing by a small crystal blue lake. A best friend who listened, was patient and always non-judgmental. A friend I know in my heart is the real Santa Claus.
It all started when I was five years old and decided to walk to beach to meet an old man I was sure was Santa. It was a walk that changed my life forever. Over the years I discovered valuable life lessons and created a rare friendship. A kind and jolly man taught me how to find purpose, peace and happiness in my often unsettled world.
The lessons he taught me are simple when you have someone patient, wise and nonjudgmental to guide you.
Here are six invaluable life-lessons I learned from an old man named Kris. Trust me when I say, you are never too young nor too old to believe in the magic of Santa Claus.
A short read you can probably finish in under an hour ...

Never mind he's my overly protective father's best friend.
And business partner.
And he's twenty years older than me.
He's top of my Christmas list, but there's no way he would ever see me as anything other than his best friend's chubby daughter, right?
Only, tonight something feels different. The way he's looking at me, the way his eyes linger on my curves a moment too long. When we end up driving home together, my sugarplums and his jingle balls get all tangled up in the tinsel.
There's about a million reasons this will never work, but I'm throwing caution to the winter wind and seeing just what sort of twinkle I can put in his eye.
And everywhere else.
