Author Stacy Feintuch

Stacy was a stay-at-home mom/part-time preschool teacher whose life was turned upside down in 2011 when her husband passed away suddenly of a heart attack.  She is raising her two fabulous daughters, now ages 18 and 20, who are turning into wonderful young women.  In 2016, she started a blog about her experience as a young widow, The Widow Wears Pink. This led her to write for other publications including Huffington Post,, Scary Mommy, Grown & Flown, Kveller, Modern Loss, Thought Catalog, and many more. In 2018 she started Living the Second Act with fellow writer Mimi Golub. Today, Stacy and her daughters  are happily living their "new normal" while always keeping her husband's spirit alive.

Trying To Live In Peace

The best thing to do for yourself is to live your life as happily as you can. This has taken me years to figure out.  Letting things go is not the easiest thing to do, and being happy can be more difficult than it sounds.

Sometimes I Stress

What if I handle something incorrectly? What if I make the wrong decision?  There will be no one to share the blame with. This is very stressful.

One Day at a Time

But the words “One Day at a Time” mean more to me than just a TV show. This is how I have learned to survive.
