Publisher's Description

An unexpected phone call acutely injects the fear of death into view and tests a mother’s faith in ways she had not imagined. "Hi Mom, it's Bob." The warm smile that her son Bob’s voice typically brought her quickly faded as she learned she could be losing a child to cancer. The phone call revealed her son had multiple myeloma—a cancer of the bone marrow—and there was no cure. Betsy found hope in her faith that God could work a miracle for four years and three months. Unfortunately, prayers did not bring healing, and her son’s death broke her heart. Dealing with grief and loss was compounded when a Boston Terrier that had given her extraordinary comfort during this time was lost as well. In this wonderfully written memoir, the author hopes to help someone grieving the loss of a child reaffirm their faith in God. However, she doesn’t gloss over the difficulties of dealing with grief and loss during her spiritual journey. Hope abounds, and a journey of renewal begins when a newly acquired Boston Terrier named Ribbons helps Betsy rediscover God’s beauty in nature. As Betsy struggles to accept God’s will in the loss of her son, she realizes that walking the dog becomes a spiritual journey where the fear of death begins to lose its sting. During walks with Ribbons, she finds comfort in a field of yellow flowers and hope in a morning sunrise. She starts to experience how people heal when God and grief meet. You’ll move from moments of deep sorrow to moments where you find the comfort of God's beauty in nature, and renewal in the gift of a bird's joyful song. It’s one of those must-read books on grieving the loss of a child that will help people learn to trust in God’s wisdom and goodness.
