Overview
"Grief is such a messy thing," Roberta Bondi writes in the introduction. "It fills us with so many ideas and images, memories and fantasies, celebration and bitter regret all at once, all superimposed upon one another. No wonder it wears us out."

In this book of poetry and reflections on her mother's death, Bondi acknowledges her grief in the presence of God over the span of a few months. She expresses many conflicting feelings love, pain, anger, guilt, emptiness, confusion, exhaustion, relief that her mother was no longer suffering. As she celebrates her mothers life and wrestles with her own sense of loss and longing, she ponders the mystery of life, death, and Gods presence everyday all around us in nature as well as in relationships.

Even though we may feel isolated in our grief, we do not grieve alone, Bondi reminds us. In this firsthand account of her grief, Bondi offers a gift to all who are grieving.
