What a precious story!


What a sweet little fellow! How I love your lake stories! :-)


Oh the stories on your lake...


Oh in tears...what a sweet story . I love his little smile. I think little duck was sent to help Father through his trials also.

Birthmothers never forget

Ahhh Kim... sigh


Oooooohhh, how precious!!! They were meant to be together - they need each other!


What a perfect union!!
xo Kris


I am so in love with this little duck and his story. Thank you Kim for sharing it!


How beautiful. You made me tear up with your wonderful pictures and story. Thank you for sharing.


Oh my....I read your sweet story, and showed your lovely photos to one of my grandchildren. (she'll be six in two weeks)
When I finished the last line she said, "And of course Gramma, they lived happily ever after....right"?
Of course they did!

Thanks for sharing Kim!

G from Ga

You have such a gift for sharing the stories of your lake as your heart sees them. May Little Duck and Father Duck share happiness, companionship and love.


heart warming.

Jenny L.

That has to be the cutest little duck I have ever seen, but only you could take pictures of him like that. What a nice start to my day!

Jenny L.

P.S. - I love the first picture of baby duck walking away. It reminds me of the swan picture where the swan was walking away too. They are both such great shots. I really like them - not sure why. Different view I guess. One of these days you are going to be famous for these beautiful pictures!


and this story could be published by YOU in a childrens book ~ YOU ARE INCREDIBLE~
love the story and love you -

Amy Jo

That is so sweet!! Actually makes me kind of sad. But I am glad he has a new family.

Oh Kim, I just took some pictures yesterday of some baby geese, and they don't even come close to the ones you have on here today. The little duck is so precious, and he really does look like he is smiling. The lake is beautiful.

Have a happy week.



This is absolutely so adorable and heartwarming. Thank you so much for sharing with us, your readers.


You are such a talent Kim. I love your blog! This was just awesome!

Beth K.

A story with such a sad beginning and such a happy ending! The lake is truly a special place, as is your blog. I'm so grateful that you share your lake with us! Bless you...

Lori might as well tear my heart out and stomp on it!! I'm crying as I write this! You have such a gift for telling these wonderful creature's need to write children's books. This is exactly why baby chicks, ducks and bunnies should not be given as Easter gifts. They end up dumped out and have to fend for themselves. So happy this little one's story has a good ending!


I am in tears .... how peaceful and amazing it is to lean on our heavenly "Father".... This little duckling sure did get it right!!!! Look at him smiling!!!!

Debbie from Texas

What a sweet story and a happy ending!

Pam Perrella

Thank you so much for sharing your lovely stories. You live in a magical world. How blessed you are to see such beauty around you all of the time. How fortunate that you are a person that "sees" it. Sadly, beauty is sometimes lost on people that can't appreciate it.


Oh that's Beautiful (tears running down my face) I Love your Lake so much and you are the best story teller Kim Bless You!! xox :)


What a sweet, sweet story. Isn't it amazing how things always seem to work out? Animals are great teachers. Thank you for sharing the magic happening at your lake. It always adds a little sunshine to my day.

Jenny L.

Hey Kim,

Any chance you will be offering the first picture of little duck on this post in your Etsy store? I would love to be able to purchase it.




As soon as I get the chance I will try to put that pic in there…Thank you sweetie for your love. xo

And thank you ALL for your big hearts and sweet comments and for always being such wonderful souls to share these moments with. I love each of you so much.



I came by today hoping for a duckling update. This one makes my heart happy. I love your beautiful soul.

Caroline Delao

Oh how I love that story, a story of hope, compasion and how beautiful the world is especially with nature. I sometimes need to look towards nature to find happiness and beauty.


such a heartwarming story…and you caught it all with your camera….your beautiful soul shone through…...
