"We get lots of solicitations ..., and since last spring, my contributions to the solicitor have often included a timely Sentinel."
The article "Mother's Helper" (March 20) gave me an idea before I had finished reading it. Recently the young daughter of a friend had come to play with my 21-month-old son. During this visit I accomplished a lot since my son was occupied with this young girl who so loves babies. I've often heard comments by mothers who'd love to have a "mother's helper" around so they could get things done. As I watched the girl, I thought how much fun her role must be—no responsibility, just playing with the baby and if anything is needed, just ask his mother. In other words, just have fun.
I realized that in one sense I am our Father-Mother God's helper in raising my (His/Her) son. During a challenging day I can change my view, or role, from a harried mother to the role of Mother's helper. I, too, can have fun caring for my son, and when a need arises, ask for help from Father-Mother, God. Although the article presented a different viewpoint, this idea came to me while reading it, and I'm grateful for it!
