452. Farming Friends: a bedtime story and meditation

Felicity the Farm Truck and Trenton the Tractor spend the morning doing their chores and enjoying the beauty of the farm.

Narrator: Male

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 7:13

Farming Friends Excerpt:

The lights on the farm flickered as the farmer got ready for another big day. Felicity the Farm Truck blinked her lights and yawned. It was time to start working. Although Felicity didn’t like waking up when it was still dark outside, she did enjoy watching the sun rise. It would be a while before that happened, so she got started on her morning chores.

 

Felicity’s first job was to carry people to their morning tasks. The little green truck rolled across the bumpy ground bouncing as she went. The people riding couldn’t help but laugh, as their ride rolled up and down the fields.

 

Once everyone was ready to go, Felicity had a moment to enjoy the sunrise. She settled in for the show, and took a deep dragon breath, in and out. Then the farm truck heard a creak. The doors of the big red barn were opening! She turned and rumbled over to the barn, eager to see her best friend. She hoped Trenton the Tractor would hurry out and share this beautiful moment with her.

Special Delivery Excerpt

The little farm truck squinted into the bright sunlight. She was ready for her day! The farmer loaded up all kinds of fruits and vegetables into Felicity’s bed and she was ready to go. Felicity farm truck loved delivering the fresh food to the people. The colors in the back of her truck were vibrant and beautiful. Today she was carrying bright red beets, orange carrots, yellow squash, dark green zucchini, and purple eggplants. Her bed was a rainbow of color!

With a lick of the lips, the dragon watched the colorful truck leave, and hoped that there would be some vegetables left over after the market. When there were extra vegetables left, sometimes, the farmer shared them with the forest animals. Oh, how the dragon hoped for some roasted beets today! Knowing there would be a wait, the dragon headed back into the forest and decided to check later.
