I was miserable for several years, and was healed by the persistent study of Science and Health. My healing was very slow. At first I did not understand the teaching, but I liked the religious part, and knew that it had healed others and I believed it would heal me when I thoroughly understood it. I would take my Science and Health, which was a present from the lady who brought the glad tidings to me, and I would ask to understand it from a spiritual standpoint. Finally, after about three or four years of study, the healing came.

Not long ago, as I was getting my little girl ready for Sunday School, she complained of earache. I denied it as best I could, and told her to keep the scientific statement of being well in mind, and to go to Sunday School if she wished. I helped her as much as possible while attending to household duties; however, on her return she came to me crying with pain in her ear, and could eat no dinner except an orange. In a short time she was very feverish, and complained of headache, also a sense of pain in her stomach. I immediately took my Bible and Science and Health, sat down beside her, and read aloud to her for some time, perhaps an hour or more, when she fell asleep. I read the 91st Psalm and peacefully realized the presence of divine Love. By bed time my little one was much better, and her earache was gone. She went to bed, slept soundly all night, and in the morning, while I was preparing breakfast, she came downstairs and peeped into the kitchen with a very bright and smiling face. She kept singing all the time she was dressing, and said, "Mamma, it seems like I can't think anything but Love." She ate a hearty breakfast and went to school, although she still complained of soreness around the ear when it was touched. I could not give her as much time as I should but I kept the scientific statement of being constantly in thought and I never heard any more of her trouble.
