This book displays the ups and downs of grief round by round wave by wave. The dark side of grief can be overwhelming but also liberating as you begin to understand why grief moves the way it does. We must embrace the loss with the intent to develop and grow from what comes of grief. Grief doesn't define you but allows you to see the world through a different lens. Feelings and emotions can dictate the day so we must be mindful of how we deal with them and give ourselves grace to feel.

The final entries are something between letters and poems—not fully letters and not fully poems but, instead, their own thing—and portray a mother who, despite her alcoholism, maintains an engaged ... more
