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.

Made in USA!


This entire week is devoted to the Fourth of July with the countdown having begun on Monday! Why the whole week since the fourth of July is one day? Because it takes a week to get prepared for all the celebrations with family and friends. Good food, good times...all in the name of freedom

With all the shopping that it takes in getting everything ready, additional shopping might be in order for just the right thing to wear. There should be, of course, certain stipulations... 

Colors: red, white & blue AND Label:

Made in the USA Day

The Made in the USA Foundation is dedicated to promoting products manufactured in the USA, as well as products assembled in the USA. We strive to create a community of USA success stories. Our online platform serves as a tool for shoppers, and as a resource for manufacturers. The Foundation also pursues litigation and legislative activity to strengthen and uphold labeling laws and standards. We hope to encourage American values around the world, raising the bar concerning minimum wages, environmental standards, labor rights, and human rights, including eliminating child labor. Most importantly, we work to create good-paying jobs in the USA and a sustainable, environmentally sound, and healthy economy. Source: Made in the USA Foundation
