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.

Flying Over America

The beauty of America is astounding! Feel like taking a flight across America, home of the Red, White and Blue? Join me for a glimpse of some of our nation's most treasured landmarks...all seen with a bird's eye view from breathtaking heights...

Ready? Take a deep breath. Don't forget to exhale!

America's beauty is in our hearts
that's where it resides, that's where it starts

While her land is bountiful amid fields of green
'tis not just landscapes that complete her scene

Spacious skies of watercolor blue
not always cloudless but always true

Amber waves of grain across America's plains
fruits of toil and labor each field proclaims

Purple mountains breathtaking at the core
strength, beauty and majesty o'er and o'er

Honor and courage are her traits
within these facts lie no debates

America's beauty is in our hearts
that's where it resides, that's where it starts

With today being National Military Spouse Appreciation Day, our travel across America is most appropriate since this is the land our military forces have sworn to defend. This is the land where sacrifice comes daily for not only those serving in a military capacity but also those who play a most important supportive role. 

God bless America the Beautiful!
