"It worked, Mommie. It worked!"

[Of Special Interest to Children]

Susan came home from school one day at lunchtime, almost in tears. She told her mother that Vickie was angry and refused either to speak to her or to play games with her. These two children had been happy playmates for a long time.

Mother asked what had happened, and Susan told her that a girl named Sherry had started to attend school. She was new in the neighborhood and seemed very shy and lonely. Susan remembered that she had learned in the Christian Science Sunday School that God is Love and that we must reflect Love as Jesus did. She had a great desire to help make the new girl feel happy and welcome.

Vickie tried hard to get her to leave Sherry and play with her. When asked to come over and join the game Susan and Sherry were playing, Vickie refused and said that she would never play with her old friend again.
