Happy New Year, dear readers. As I look at Honey Good’s most popular posts of 2021, I see hope for the coming year. Truth be told, I cannot say that I am upset to see 2021 behind me. It was a tough year for many of us, and I personally found myself a bit lost. The wonderful thing is that I recognized this and recently have made the decision to live life again on my terms. Things are looking up and I am ready to face this new year with moxie!

“In one split second in my 40’s, I was no longer Mrs. Michael A. Forman. I was a widow. My late husband, also in his 40’s, had suddenly passed away from an unexpected heart attack.
The day of Michael’s funeral is a blur. I don’t recall the Rabbi’s words. I do not remember how I arrived or left Michael’s funeral.
Similarly, I don’t know who put a lifesaving paperback book in my hand at the end of the service. The book became my savior as I began a new passage, a new journey back to life.”
