Welcome to Following the Whispers blog
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit. Hope you enjoy your stay. I blog here whenever I feel the need. This blog was created at the time my memoir came out, in February, 2009. Its motto was: creating a life of inner peace and self-acceptance from the depths of despair. Now, my focus is sharing this journey we call life.
“Only one thing is more frightening than speaking your truth, and that is not speaking it.” Naomi Wolf
“We are called human beings, not human doings.” Wes Nisker, Buddhist teacher
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs…(And) if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly.” Theodore Roosevelt

The doctor tells us we probably have a week at the outside. We are all at peace with her. There is no unfinished business. This is a woman who has had a good life, raised five incredible kids, and those kids have, in turn, raised wonderful children as well. This was an amazing family to marry into and I am so blessed to be part of this clan.
I will be bringing my computer to hospice daily and will try to begin visiting your blogs as I can. Thank you all for your continued support during this time.
