798. Shapes in the Stars: a soothing meditation and bedtime story

Callie and her parents have an evening of dancing and imagination under a bright, starry sky.

Narrator: Male

Story Begins: 3:45

Shapes in the Stars Excerpt:

It was a beautiful evening on Ahway Island. The sky above was clear and cloudless, gradually fading from a vibrant blue, to a soft orange, to a gentle pink. The weather was just right – not too warm and not too cool – the kind of night that makes people want to spend time outside.

And outside is just where the Kim family found themselves. Callie, after having a super fun day playing in her inflatable pool, sat on the back porch with her mom and dad.  They had eaten dinner together, and now Callie was drawing pictures with colorful chalk on her patio. She drew all sorts of fantastic things – like a purple unicorn, and a red firetruck with a bright yellow hose.

Today’s Meditation: Relax as you imagine sunlight warming you as you lie in a grassy meadow.
