Delivering Joy Excerpt:

It was a cozy morning. The sun was just rising over Ahway Island, warming the earth with its brightness. The leaves gently swayed in the breeze. As the sun climbed higher in the sky, all of the plants, animals, people, and vehicles started to wake up.


Gabby Flower Delivery Truck had just started her morning with her driver, Skylar the Florist. Gabby loved delivering flowers! Everyone always had a big smile on their faces when Gabby and Skylar pulled up to their homes. Gabby loved making others happy – it was one of the reasons why she delivered flowers!


Skylar would collect everyone’s orders at the beginning of the week. Then, they would drive Gabby to the Community Garden or to other special areas on Ahway Island where flower picking was allowed to collect the perfect flowers for a bouquet.

Today’s Meditation: Love flows through you in this meditation as you imagine a baby fawn and mama deer.
