Through the agency of a little child, in fact with a mere babe as teacher, I have been privileged to learn a helpful lesson showing the folly of a much used statement: "My progress in Christian Science has been very slow."
The child was trying to say her first word, "Mother." The attempt at first, was, indeed, almost a failure, but gradually, as the days passed, the patient babe was able to say the desired word with greater ease until, finally, the victory was won, and she could say, with wonderful distinctness, "Mother." Not satisfied with once pronouncing the name, the babe repeated this sweetest word in her child–world over and over, with each repetition clapping her hands with joy. She seemed never to tire of using her new–born knowledge.
There came a day when the child had two words in her speaking vocabulary. The added one was "Father."
