I am indeed grateful for the many blessings that have come to my family and to me since we came into Christian Science.

Ill health, financial troubles, and subsequent separation from our little three and a half year old boy seemed more than I could stand, and the way was dark and dreary. We were led to send our little boy to a private kindergarten conducted by a dear Christian Scientist, though we did not know it at that time. It was while endeavoring to help the boy learn the words of our Leader's beautiful hymn beginning "Shepherd, show me how to go" (Poems, p. 14), and hearing his sweet baby voice repeat, "All the rugged way," and say, "That means the road is rough," that I was led to investigate Christian Science.

Our blessings have been too numerous to mention here, but I am especially grateful for a recent healing. Our child was getting into a new coupe, and in trying to close the door, smashed his thumb. To mortal sense it was indeed a serious injury, the thumb being flattened like a pancake, and jammed so tightly in the door that his father had to open it. His father had him repeat the "scientific statement of being" from "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy (p. 468), and by the time they joined me,—some half an hour later,—noticing the little one's preoccupation, I asked him what the trouble was. He told me he had hurt his thumb in the door. I asked him what he did about it; and he said, "Oh, I talked to God about it, and now it is all right." There has never been any further trouble with that thumb.
