Today’s Children’s Story (EP59): The Bubbly Car Wash: a bedtime story and relaxation for kids
Colin the car is dirty and goes to the car wash. He sees other dirty cars in line and wonders what they’ll look like clean.
Today’s Meditation: Deep dragon breaths are a key part of this guided meditation as you relax your body from your toes up to the top of your head.
Children’s Story Excerpt:
Slowly the garage door rolled up and away. Colin blinked, as sunlight spilled through his windshield. The little red car closed his eyes again and smiled, enjoying the warmth of the sun. He sighed happily and slowly opened his eyes to the bright world. Colin looked up at the sky. It was light blue without a single white cloud disrupting the color. The little red car looked at his hood, doors, trunk, and sides in the sunlight. His bright red paint faded away under the dirt. It was definitely time for a wash. Since the day was warm and bright, it seemed like as good a day as any. Colin saw the driver approaching and hoped that the driver would take him somewhere to get clean.
