Gratitude to Mrs. Eddy

To the student of Christian Science it seems strange that any one should object to Christian Scientists expressing their gratitude to Mrs. Eddy, whether publicly or privately, though many can recall their own former impatience with such expressions. The writer had had many blessings from Truth before she was really grateful to the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science. Gratitude came as the result of an experience which occurred in the first year's study of Mrs. Eddy's teachings.

The writer's baby had been taken seriously ill, and as the father was several hundred miles away, this added to the mother's sense of human responsibility. The efforts to realize the truth of being were earnest and sincere, but for six days the little one seemed to be growing steadily worse. During this time the mother had held the child in her arms night and day. Any attempt to lay her in her crib resulted in such moans that the human sense of love was stirred and the child was immediately gathered into the mother's arms. All efforts to study the daily Bible Lesson were futile, because it seemed impossible to hold both the child and the lesson books.
