No scars

Originally published in Portuguese, this testimony first appeared in the February 2015 Portuguese, Spanish, French, and German editions of The Herald of Christian Science.

 In 2009, a week before Christmas, I was at a friend’s house when we decided to make a sauce for a cake that his mom had made. I suggested we make a caramel sauce. I have a quick and delicious recipe from Brazil. We just needed to boil a can of condensed milk in a pressure cooker for a while and let the can cool down before opening it. I put the can of condensed milk in the refrigerator for it to cool down more quickly.

However, amidst talking and laughter, I took the can to see if it had cooled enough and ended up opening the can too soon, without really thinking much about it. Hot condensed milk went all over my face.
