Upon being told that by reading the textbook of Christian Science, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, I could help another, I laid aside all prejudice and began to read.

At this time I was wearing a long elastic stocking for varicose veins. That leg and foot had become smaller than the other from the long use of the elastic. I was often heard to complain, as the stocking was very uncomfortable and even painful, but without it I could not walk at all. I used to sit with one foot extended beyond the other to avoid discomfort. After I had been reading about two months, my daughter noticed one evening that I was sitting normally with feet together, and she asked about the rubber stocking. It was then that I discovered for the first time that I did not have it on. I did not know how long I had been going without it. I did not even know where it was. Oh, the joy and the wonder of being free!

Though I had very little understanding of Christian Science, I had received my first spiritual uplifting and felt very close to God. I want to express profound gratitude for this and for many subsequent healings.
