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

Monday Musings - Breaking Hearts
Thank you all for your love and support. We are broken hearted. As of right now, we are still planning on taking our trip for 8 days, rather than 16. We can always come home if he really starts to deteriorate. Our housesitter adores Buddy and he just loves her, so it should be okay.
In the meantime, I can't look at him without my heart aching and the tears flowing. I am going to try to enjoy every moment we have with him, one day at a time. That's all any of us can do anyway. This really hammers home that message. Love love love the ones we're with.
