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.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving Day: A Holiday Feast 

A cornucopia of fruits, nuts, and veggies 
Turkey, trimmings, cakes, and pies 
More than anyone could possibly ask 
Instead of a treat, becomes our demise


Family and friends prepare favorite recipes
Bringing various homemade dishes to explore
Gluttons for punishment, a natural instinct
Lead us back for more and more
Thirst quenched and bellies stuffed to the gills
Rocking chair conversation not too deep
Is it the rocking motion or the turkey
That finally puts us all to sleep?

 Thanksgiving: A Celebration of Gratitude 

A cornucopia of thoughtfulness and gratitude,
Thanks from the heart, as well as the lips,
More blessings than anyone could ask
Comes with all the trimmings this day equips
Family and friends unite in fellowship
Granting praise for all the gifts of the year
A candle is lit and with prayerful hands
The true meaning of Thanksgiving is clear
