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”.

My favorite childhood memory is when we were allowed to eat in the living room. My mom would spread an ugly plastic table cloth out on the floor and we would just laugh, talk, and sometimes watch something together on t.v. (a special program). It was such a treat!
I love that!! Great idea. 🙂
My favorite memory is my grandmother taking me fishing.
My fondest memories childhood memory is getting to go on a winter ice fishing trip with my Grandpa! We would take the motorhome, and camp all weekend at the lake and fish on the ice.
That sounds amazing, Sandra!
So sweet. I’m home with my son today and he keeps asking me to play but I’ve got so many things to get done. Good reminder to make playing with him a priority!
My fondest childhood memory is running through the fields holding my Dad’s hand.
We love Ducky Dynasty too – I didn’t know about this book, thanks! My husband has their men’s devotional 🙂 One of my fondest memories was going to Family Camp in the summer with our church, we stayed in cabins, swam, sailed, played mini golf, all sorts of fun stuff – and now we take our own family to Family Camp every summer and it’s just as fun!
So fun! How does your husband like the men’s devotional?
Thank you for reading our book and letting others know about it!! I love your posts and your family is adorable. Hugs!!
Hi Chyrs, it was an honor! And thank you for stopping by and for the sweet comment….made my day!
Such a sweet post! It’s hard to see our kiddos sick, but sometimes they offer the best times of snuggling, reading and talking. Thanks for doing the giveaway! Glad y’all are enjoying the book!
Yes, I selfishly like when they are sick(not the throwing up kind) so they will actually sit still and snuggle. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by and commenting! Praying for your family as you walk boldly in your calling!
