One Mother's Day week I found myself fretting over what presents to buy. The stores were full of reminders of Mother's Day. It aroused me to think more deeply about true motherhood, because at that time my home seemed to be disrupted by rebelliousness in the children. In giving prayerful thought to this problem as a Christian Scientist, I came to realize that I was engaging in either too little or too much correction and that this inconsistency had resulted in a home where three children seemed to be going in three directions. So I took a good long look at my concept of motherhood and home.
I realized that the only parentage is that of the creative Father-Mother God and that each one, whether called child or parent, lived by right of divine Love. I began tracing each child's higher relationship to the true Parent, shutting the door on the personal sense of mother.
Motherhood soon took on new meaning; I saw that each girl's origin was in the parent Mind, untouched by the dream of material living. I saw that each child's idea of home was intact, that each was always in her right place, that her home was provided by her Parent, or God, and that it was eternal and permanent and not confined to the limited mortal beliefs of home, mother, or child. I saw also that the true child is always in her right place and already includes satisfaction, wholeness, completeness, fullness, harmony, and obedience.
