Today is Monday and also the day before Christmas eve. The sun is shining and I am sitting at my computer with my first cup of tea thinking about what to write for today’s blog entry. There are so many wonderful stories and searching for the right one and time passed so quickly… I could surf the internet for stories, look through my books and notes to inspire myself all day long.

I must confess, that that kind of advent calendar is a lot of work. At first it doesn’t seem that much – 24 entries – that sounds doable. Well, it is indeed, but it also is a challenge to myself to finish it, as soon as I get started. It’s supposed to be varied, bringing ideas, inspire, get you in christmas mood…

Just like today… Today I decided to write you some happy thoughts, because they always put a smile in my face while reading them…. This list can be carried on endlessly, and if you can think of anything to add, please don’t hesitate and write it in the comments area. 🙂 I always look forward to reading them!
