No, we cannot help. Only you knows that password.

I accept if people don't know of a solution but I can do without dismissive, jokey responses. That's just a waste of everyone's (and my) time.
Guess what, about an hour after I read Kappy's response I located an easy and accessible solution for this problem on-line. It works perfectly. You don't need to download anything, and you can retrieve your password just by going to the right place on your Mac. My phone has been restored. Nothing is missing. And I now have the password safely written down so I will never forget it again.
I really would appreciate if people in the support community would try to come up with constructive solutions (rather than make jokes about the problems others are having). Solutions to problems frequently exist.
This time, anyway, I found a solution to my problem. :-)

Blix21 is mistaken.
You cannot recover your password by finding it anywhere on your Mac because it is not stored anywhere on your Mac.
Most likely, Blix21 remembered what the password is.
Try the password for your computer login or your AppleID password.
