What’s in a Name?

There was a time where I disliked being called Honey preferring Janette or simply Jan. Eventually, Honey was a name I hear almost exclusively from family and church mates. High school came and I was christened with a new name, Jad, and that is what most people call me now.

 But today I asked the kid in my family to call me Ate Honey and I spoon fed her.
She let me touch her head and look at her scab.
We watched Pokémon together.
We made scribbles and I drew her cats.
I connected with her.
And once again, after a very long time, I was Ate Honey again.
