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

Grandma land for real

Hi dear friends,
One more week until we leave to meet our twin grand babies. They are not here yet, but will come in the next week, either on their own or induced. I'm over the moon with excitement and anticipation and praying that babies and mom come through the birth easily and with no problems whatsoever.
I won't be around the internet much this month, so I want to wish everyone a happy and joyous Thanksgiving. May we all count our blessings and be grateful every single moment for our lives, our health, our freedom, our joy, and the love we have in our lives.

Blessings,
Karen
