What to Pack
[Of Special Interest to Juniors]
Allan was getting ready to go away to camp for the first time. He was delighted with the prospect of spending several weeks on a lake in Canada with a full schedule of outdoor activities. But at times he wondered if he would he homesick so far away from home among new acquaintances.
When Allan listened to this unhappy suggestion, he covered up his worry by telling how well he could swim, how strong he was, and what endurance he had for the portages. He did not realize that he was covering up one error with another, concealing fear with egotism!
Allan's mother heard him bragging before his sisters, and she asked God, divine Mind, to show her how to help her son get rid of this unpleasant trait which could spoil his vacation. The answer came in an unusual way. She remembered the game which the whole family had enjoyed playing when they went on motor trips. They took turns telling what they would pack for the trip. They would start by saying, "In my trunk I will pack ...," and then each one would add something after repeating the list of things the others had packed. It was a hilarious game, for they often packed very funny things in the trunk.
