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: stress free Thanksgiving
I decided not the stuff the bird this year, so I could make the stuffing the day before. Made it so much easier doing it that way. Then Thursday morning, all I had to do was put together the casserole, make the salad (sans the dressing, of course,) and hubby made the pecan pie.
When it was a time to eat, we simply had to put three dishes in the oven for 15 minutes and voila, our meal was ready. I used to fret so about things coming out together at the same time. I used to hate doing all the dishes. Actually I used to hate cooking. But something's happened and I am enjoying the preparation and the clean up of food. I think I've moved beyond living my life on one color of the rainbow.
How about you?
