Open the Roof Excerpt:

Tucked away in her cozy garage Carmen the little blue convertible hoped to go out for a drive on a bright sunny day. Oh how the little convertible loved the warm weather when she got to roll down her roof and enjoy the sunshine.  Today, the temperature felt just about right, not too hot, not too cold.  The garage door rolled open and Carmen could see the sun shining through the scattered fluffy clouds.  Maybe she would go for a drive today!  Sure enough her driver walked into the garage smiling and looking up at the sun.  She wandered over to the little car and said.  “I think this is a great day to drop your roof.  What do you think?”  Carmen felt excited! They were definitely going out! Today’s Meditation: Relax in the grass as you imagine sunlight warming you from head to toe.
