GAME OF GRATITUDE
[Of Special Interest to Children]
Sandi lived in the United States and attended the Christian Science Sunday School. She and her parents lived a few blocks from church, and they enjoyed walking there together on Sunday mornings. Sometimes, on the way, they played a game in which they took turns telling all the things they were grateful for. They called this the gratitude game. Since there are so many things to be grateful for, Sandi and her parents always reached Sunday School and church before they had time to finish the game.
There were a number of reasons why the family liked the game so much. For one thing, they knew that gratitude is a way of praying, because it turns thought to God, the source of all good. They also had found that being grateful is a sure way of being joyful, for no one can be cross when he is thankful any more than a room can be dark when the light is on. And one wonderful day the family learned that gratitude can heal. Here is how it happened.
All the children who went to the school Sandi attended during the week were Christian Scientists like herself. Sandi always looked forward to seeing her playmates and to learning many interesting things. But this particular morning she did not look happy about going to school when her mother went to awaken her.
