Rescue Mission Excerpt:

It was a cold winter day on Ahway Island. Sunlight filled the clear blue sky and shimmered on the water as Teagan Tugboat’s captain steered her out of Ahway Island Harbor.


Teagan was excited about this adventurous day. They were headed north for a special winter training mission. It would be the farthest Teagan had ever sailed from Ahway Island Bay.


Teagan had always dreamed of going to far away places, but her job didn’t require such long journeys. Most of her work focused on helping boats enter and exit Ahway Island Harbor. It was an important job and she liked doing it, but today she was very happy to get the opportunity to explore a totally new part of the waters around Ahway Island.

Today’s Meditation: Picture floating in the safe and comforting waters of a tranquil pool.
