Today’s Bedtime Story with a Positive Message: Terry and Charlie truck carefully drive at the edge of the forest.  Charlie gets hot and needs water. What will Terry Truck do to help his friend?

Excerpt from Mystery Jug: a children’s story with a positive message:

Warm sunlight filtered through the leaves of the trees at the edge of the woods. A lacy pattern of light and leaves covered everything underneath the forest canopy. Terry the truck carefully drove alongside Charlie. The two trucks drove slowly at the edge of the forest and tried to keep their engines cool. Today, even in the shade, it was hot. Up ahead, Terry noticed a hill. The little truck wondered how they would climb it in the heat.

Today’s Meditation:

Relax in the grass as you imagine sunlight warming you from head to toe.
