Your Turn: a soothing story and guided meditation

It time for a game and James is ready. Remembering that his sister often plays the games he chooses, James tells her, "It's your turn to pick."

Narrator: Male

Your Turn Story Excerpt:

James peered out the window at the soft fluffy snow flakes drifting down from the clouds. As the snowflakes fell into the spot light of the outdoor lamps, each flake gleamed bright white and then settled onto the grass.  The yard was slowly tucked in by the white blanket.  James hoped that the snow would still be there tomorrow morning.

Julia walked over to the window, sat next to her little brother and said, “Wow, look at all that snow! I can’t wait to play in it tomorrow!”

“That’s what I was thinking!” James replied.

“It’s too bad, it’s too late to play in the snow now.  Do you want to play with the blocks?” Julia added.

“I would rather paint.” James said.

“I don’t know,” Julia said, “that’s pretty messy.  Mom and dad may not want us to start a painting project now.”

“I really feel like making art.” James said, turning away from the window to look at his sister.

“Well you can make art with blocks.” Julia said, “And it isn’t messy.”

James was just about to complain. When he realized that the last few times they had played, Julia had let him pick.  James wondered if she got tired of always doing what he wanted to do.  James took a deep dragon breath in and out (deep breath) and decided that it was time to let his big sister pick.
