Friendly Flowers and A Bouncing Bumble Bee Story Excerpt:

“Beautiful morning isn’t it?” Summer the happy yellow flower said.  Summer thought every morning was a beautiful morning.  When it was sunny she enjoyed the light and the warmth, when it was rainy she enjoyed the refreshing water to drink, and when it was windy, Summer enjoyed the feel of the air as it circled her leaves and blossoms.  The yellow snapdragon said the sun made her feel like dancing.

“It sure is.”  Sawyer replied.  “I wonder if Bert will visit today?”  Bert was their friend the bumblebee.  He usually visited them on sunny days.

“I hope so.”  Summer said. “He always makes me laugh, the way he bounces around off of the flowers and grass.”  She began to giggle at the thought.

“I don’t know.” Sidney the purple snapdragon jumped into the conversation.  “Bert always seems to bounce off of me.  I better soak in some more sunshine so he doesn’t knock me over.”

Sawyer and Summer laughed.  “You’ll be fine Sidney.”  Sawyer said, “You always are.”  Sidney did tend to worry about things.   Sawyer and Summer helped him settle down when he needed help.  All three snapdragons were relaxing in the sunlight when they heard a Bzzzzzzz in the distance.  The sound grew louder and louder.  “Here comes Bert.”  Sawyer said as Sidney took a deep breath, in and out (deep breath) trying to relax.

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