They say you can’t top the original (and they’re probably right), but I’m going to try.
The original Good News was a column in the Muscatine Journal (a small Iowa newspaper), written by my cousin, Amy Meyer. To know Amy was to love her, and many, many did. She was a teacher, foster mom, writer, breast cancer warrior, and much more. More than anything, she was inspiring. With her words in The (Original) Good News, she managed to find light in any situation. She truly did see the Good News in everything she did, right up until the breast cancer took her very, very bright life. But, this is The Good News (Two) so we’re going to keep things bright and shiny around here, because that’s how Amy would have wanted it. I’ve heard recently (as in almost every time I leave my purse somewhere or am easily distracted by what’s on TV) that Amy and I have lots of similarities. I’m going to try to use this space to continue that trend with my writing. Enjoy!
