Six Word Saturday A Little Bird Once Told Me

Once upon a time in the magical land of Minnesota, somewhere near Wayzata, and just before all the leaves began to turn-

that wee little bird said to me-

stay positive
the sun will shine again
if you just believe.


tweet, tweet.
That if you believe good things 
will happen, they most assuredly will.

I hope this post finds everyone here in the best of spirits.

My spirits got a boost this morning.
believing our sunshine would return, and shadows would spring to life again.

However, believing isn't always fool proof.

Sometimes, just believing your table is set, doesn't make it so.  Can you spot the one simple thing missing here? 

Nobody else did either until, somebody wanted to spread butter-


So let your eyes do your believing-

What do you see?

If you believe in little girl dreams 
set upon little Charlie Brown Christmas trees 
and cookies and tea, 
you'll set yourself free,
to believe 
in dreams.

Although just believing my sunshine would return still carried that dreadful notion that I better enjoy it before it fades away again. 

Where's my shadow?

I only wish I knew where our Minnesota sun keeps disappearing to these winter days?

Lovely photos, the first one with the columns is very nice with your daughter, your table setting is beautiful and I loved the decorations. I will send some sun your way, hopefully it will reach you :)

I was gonna guess that wine was missing from those glasses.

Wise birdie!

We are having a Michigan wintery day here too. Cold (67F), dreary, wet (had a thundershower earlier this AM), but of course no snow nor freezing.

I bring my own sunshine!! Belated Merry Christmas!!

Fun post Karen! I do believe that having a positive attitude certainly does help, but yup we have to action as well as believing. I do believe! lol!

What a lovely post, Karen! I love the figure carrying the lantern especially. Winter sun? Don't you have to go to the Caribbean or some such? Sigh!
Very best wishes for 2015 to you and yours! Keep smiling :)
