I lost my mother when I was...

I lost my mother when I was a young girl. I was an only child, and she had been my constant companion, with the result that I had failed to make friends of my own age. At her passing I was so stricken with grief that although I had always been healthy I quickly lapsed into a nervous condition from which I was never well for more than two or three days at a time. This continued for six years, until, on being introduced "to Christian Science, I was healed entirely of the sense of separation and loneliness.

Later on the same problem presented itself when my husband passed on. This time I was not overwhelmed by self-pity and grief as I had been before. Two days earlier, when speaking of this possibility, my husband said. "It's you I am so worried about, for I know how much I mean to you." I was able to say, "My happiness does not and never did rest in you as a corporeal being; it emanates from God, whom you express in so many lovely qualities."
