Lean a little harder

When I was in high school, I was very much in need of a summer job. At the time the best place to find one was at a summer resort. About a month before the season began, I made a special trip to a seaside vacation area to find out what work was available. I also visited a friend who lived there and told her of my need. I returned home filled with confidence, feeling quite certain that a summer job would take shape, although I had received no assurance from anyone whom I had interviewed.

A few days before school ended I received a letter from my friend, telling me that if I came at once there might be a position available near her home. Might be! Dauntless, I packed my bag with the clothing I needed, and I mentally stashed it with confidence, expectation, and joy. Off I went. I also took my precious books, the Bible and the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy.
