For many years I used to make advent calendars for the kids. 24 small wrapped gifts, one for every morning throughout advent. Slowly, as the children grew out of the nest, I reduced this, until I stopped completely this year. But then Marta "took the spoon in her own hands" as we say in Norway. SHE made ME a calendar. The first gift was waiting on top of my computer December 1st when I woke early in the hotel room I shared with Marta in London.
What a surprise!
When we came home from London, a basket with the rest of the gifts was waiting, and since then I have unwrapped one gift every simgle morning. This advent I feel like a child. And I love it.
Thank you Marta!
