One Tuesday morning I was rushing around, trying to tie together some loose ends of various projects and also to get my two preschoolers ready for us to visit friends. The night before I had attended a meeting about one of these projects, in which I submitted a letter of resignation. I was not planning to leave until after the project was completed, but I had been admonished. Feeling burdened by the endless tedious tasks involved in the project, I was resentful that no one else was either willing or able to help with them.

Stepping outside, I twisted my ankle and fell onto the porch. Immediately "the scientific statement of being" from Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures came to my thought, and I stayed where I was to contemplate the truths it states and to reassure my little girls that I was fine. Filled with confidence, I stood up, packed the car, and continued with the day.

Although there were moments of stiffness, I was able to take a walk with our friends without the least bit of discomfort. We returned to the house and, after sitting for a while, I tried to get up, only to find myself limping. In fact, I soon could not put any weight on my ankle.
