When our daughter was two...

When our daughter was two years old, she fell backward from a chair, striking her head with great force on the sharp edge of a concrete curb. We were attending a party at the time, and the other guests expressed much alarm. My first thought was that there are no accidents in divine Mind. Knowing that there is only the one Mind, God, who is lovingly caring for His children at all times, I denied vigorously the suggestion that there are many minds.

The bleeding was profuse, and I wrapped a towel around the child's head while I held her. I persistently refused to allow anyone to examine her, nor would I do so myself. Mrs. Eddy says in Science and Health (p. 261), "Look away from the body into Truth and Love, the Principle of all happiness, harmony, and immortality," and I knew that it was neither necessary nor wise to try to see the injury when in reality in God's perfect, spiritual creation none existed.
