It was Friday afternoon, when I felt an emptiness inside that I'd never felt before. I just sat down in our boarding-house (since I had no class that day), and the thought of my best friend came flooding into my mind. I felt very bad just thinking of our graduation day, when we would be going our own ways. I had this fear that I might lose my communication with her after graduation.
Saturday came, and I went to our branch church to open the Christian Science Reading Room. After doing the routine activities, I sat down and began flipping pages of the newly-arrived Christian Science periodicals. I came across the March issue of the Journal, which arrived a little bit earlier than usual.
As I went through the pages, the story of Myra Brown, "Sparkly life" by Joan Taylor [p. 46], caught my attention. I read the article and couldn't contain the joy that filled my heart when I read Myra's line "... we don't have to look ahead and dread anything. We need to rejoice in the present."
