They came from my husband, who left our dog, our home and me, right between the deaths of my parents. It took me years to understand that this too, was a gift. It would take me time, too, to understand that gift. But during those difficult months I learned more about loss, bitterness and grief than I had imagined possible. And that box of darkness turned out to contain surprises of a wondrous kind.
