Motherhood desire fulfilled

I felt it was important to cultivate my maternal qualities.

Watching families heading home after church, I voiced a closely held yearning: “I’m sorry that I never had a child.” 

My friend replied, “You can’t be denied your motherhood.” 

I accepted his response as an absolute truth. I’d learned in my study of Christian Science that as my Father-Mother God’s image and likeness, I possessed not only all Her mothering qualities but also opportunities to “be fruitful, and multiply” them in my experience (see Genesis 1:26, 28).
