When my son went away to college, I really had to overcome a feeling of being left all alone because it had been just the two of us at home. As my son was growing up, people had said that a women could not raise a male child by herself. But I proved that to be wrong by relying on God to care for us both. I learned that all things are possible with God. Now I had to prove that God will never leave us alone.

I tried to understand what Christ Jesus meant when he said, "And he that sent me is with me: the Father hath not left me alone; for I do always those things that please him." I tried to "do always those things that please" God. I got busy in my branch church and in helping other people to understand how good God is. I knew that I did not have time to dwell on the past and to wish that my son was still a little boy at home with me. I had to get on with expressing God, who is man's Life. As Mrs. Eddy says in the Preface of Science and Health: "To those leaning on the sustaining infinite, to-day is big with blessings." My loneliness was healed.
