Truth overcomes stress

From the February 2014 issue of The Christian Science Journal

First appeared in the March 2013 issue of The Herald of Christian Science. Originally written in Portuguese.

A few years ago, within a very short time, my mother passed on in the United States, I packed up and emptied her home to sell it, flew back to Brazil, packed up my own home of 15 years, moved to a new home, started a demanding new job in a city I wasn’t familiar with, and tried to unpack and help my family adjust to our new home and environs. Despite cheerfully performing all the tasks, I often felt overwhelmed, tired, and sad about my mother’s passing.
