When I missed my friend

ABOUT FIVE YEARS AGO I lost a very dear friend. Her passing sent me into a deep bout of grief for almost a year. I had never felt such a sense of loss before, and I did not know if I would ever come out of it.

Although I sought the support of several Christian Science practitioners at different times following my friend's passing, and prayed as best I could on my own, I was barely functional. I went to work every day but would dissolve into a puddle of tears when I got home. The bills were not getting paid on time—not because I did not want to pay them, but because I could not remember where I had put them, and when I did find them, they were usually already late.
