James is so relieved to have his blanket back he wants to make a blanket for Dragon. All the kids love the idea and soon they are all busy with a thoughtful gift.

A Thoughtful Gift Story Excerpt:

James and Julia quickly spread the word about Dragon’s blanket. Before long there was a line of kids holding t-shirts at their door. Rogelio shared his favorite red shirt, that was now too small. Then Brianna shared her striped orange shirt. Mia shared the sunny yellow t-shirt that made everyone smile, and Owen shared his super soft green shirt. Owen gave the old shirt one last hug and handed the it to James. Anora shared her favorite blue t-shirt and Billy shared his purple one. Soon there was a pile of shirts in the family room. James smiled and said, “I think we have enough now. Now I need to figure out how to make a blanket.”

Today’s Meditation: Imagine floating in a tranquil pool, safe and relaxed, as the water rocks you gently.
