Welcome to Awakenings

Life IS history in the making. Every word we say, everything we do becomes history the moment it is said or done. Life void of memories leaves nothing but emptiness. For those who might consider history boring, think again: It is who we are, what we do and why we are here. We are certainly individuals in our thoughts and deeds but we all germinated from seeds planted long, long ago.

Forever Watchful

When our forefathers landed at Jamestown in 1607, they echoed loudly the founding of what they acknowledged as their utopia: The land of enchantment—America! Through decade after decade, change after change, advancement after advancement, many, many symbols became lasting representatives of the United States of America. Of these is an icon of American freedom, the American bald eagle, which was adopted as the national bird in 1782.

Have your thoughts of this majestic eagle been one of acceptance and no more? Are you one of those fortunate enough to have witnessed its beauty and poise in flight? Perhaps on a clear, sunny day an unexpected moment led you to lift your eyes toward a lofty perch where regal in stance it balances on a tree limb or gracefully places snippets of food in the gapping mouths of its young. 

Whatever your experiences, or lack thereof, there is strength to be appreciated in the genealogy of the eagle that binds it to America, the land and her people. The eagle's keen eyes are forever watchful as the wind brushes beneath its wings lifting it gently to soar over the hills, valleys, rivers and streams. What a magnificent sight!

Let us all be like the eagle—FOREVER WATCHFUL!
