760. Maintenance Day: a bedtime story and relaxation for kids

Drevan Dump Truck isn’t feeling quite his best, so Dory Dump Truck suggests he gets a check up.

Maintenance Day Excerpt:

Nestled on Ahway Island, there stood a snug and inviting garage, which a group of dedicated construction vehicles called home. With the arrival of each new day, the sun rose above the horizon, painting the garage with its golden rays. Inside, a little dump truck named Drevan dreamt happily about endless possibilities of the work he and his friends could accomplish together and all the people he could help.

With a gentle creak, Drevan’s big garage door began to roll open, unveiling the vast construction yard outside, bathed in the warm glow of the sun. Drevan woke up with a yawn (yawn), looking forward to what the day had to offer. As the morning light poured in through the door, drivers began to enter one by one, chatting with one another as they hopped into their respective vehicles. Gradually, each vehicle hummed to life, ready to take on the day’s tasks. Once Drevan’s engine was on, it revved cheerfully, as if to say, “I’m ready for adventure!”

Today’s Meditation: Relax as you imagine you are a baby penguin snuggled close to its papa.
