Have you ever had one of those days that you had a laundry list of to-do items yet something happens and you don’t get to do any of them? That was me today. For the first time all year, my son is home from school sick. My initial thought was “oh no, when will I catch up on all of my stuff?!” But God quickly reminded me that being able to stay home and take care of my sick baby is more important than anything on that to-do list.
As I laid in bed and cuddled with him this morning we read the new book “Happy, Happy, Happy Stories for Kids” by Korie Robertson & Chrys Howard. Our family loves to watch Duck Dynasty because not only are they funny but their faith is woven throughout their life. This book is so fun to read because it is fun and faith-filled stories with real life applications at the end of each story.
Reading these stories with my sick son today reminded me that things don’t always go as planned in life. But we have a choice in those moments. We can choose to be negative and bitter or we can find joy even in hard circumstances. Though you can see my son is sick in this picture he was able to muster up a smile after reading one of these stories that made him “happy, happy, happy”.
