When our children were young, my husband passed on quite suddenly

When our children were young, my husband passed on quite suddenly. The children expressed a deep regret for not having their father with them. But because they were students in the Christian Science Sunday School, we were able to discuss the spiritual truths of this marvelous Science. I explained to the children that if they had received a beautifully wrapped gift from a friend, they would admire the package, but the important part would be the gift. So, we could cherish the qualities that their father expressed, such as love, kindness, honesty, strength, and happiness. This reasoning gave the children a great deal of peace.

Years later my daughter left home for an extended trip throughout the western states. At one point she wrote that it had comforted her to remember that we are all close to one another in the universe of Spirit. She added that she had thought about this statement in Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy (p. vii): "To those leaning on the sustaining infinite, to-day is big with blessings."
