The day I lost my wallet...

In this excerpt from the German Edition of The Herald of Christian Science—Shortwave, Cornelia Schacht speaks with Rita Klintwort de Almeida.

Rita Klintwort de Almedia: Today, when situations seem very difficult or almost impossible to solve, I often think back to an experience I had when I was about sixteen. I was living with my parents in a little harbor town called Itajai in Brazil. Two afternoons a week I went to English classes in the center of town.

One day my father gave me a large sum of money to take with me so I could buy a particular item for him. I carefully put the money away in my wallet. When the class was over, I went to make the purchase. I didn't find the item, however, so I strolled on home. But when I got there, I discovered that I had lost my wallet.
