For the countless ways in which Christian Science has blessed me during my entire life, I can never adequately express my gratitude. I am very grateful for the Christian Science Sunday School, which I attended for eighteen years, and for a wise mother, who early saw the importance of encouraging me to do my own metaphysical work.

When I was a small child playing in a vacant lot one Saturday, I stepped into a hole occupied by a nest of yellow jackets. The insects attacked me: there were hornets in my clothing and shoes. I was stung from head to toe, and my eyes were almost closed with the swelling. My mother, after talking to me of Love and instilling in me a feeling of love for all God's creatures, and explaining that I had unintentionally destroyed the home of the hornets, sent me to my room with my own copy of Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy. I read familiar passages, and in a short time, although the evidence was not entirely gone, I went outside to play again with the other children. The next day I went to Sunday School, and there was no mark to show that I had gone through this experience.
