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.

Turkey Facts
Thanksgiving Day is one of the most popular holidays occurring at one of the most beautiful times of the year. It is a time of family gatherings filled with fun, food and fellowship when the air is filled with sweet aromas of somethin' good cookin' in the kitchen. That, of course, is AFTER all the peelin', choppin', dicin', stuffin', bakin', bastin' and slicin' is done preparing the 46 million turkeys that are eaten each Thanksgiving!

What takes hours upon hours, often days, of preparation will be consumed in a matter of minutes. The table conversation will last longer than eating the gourmet meal!


The day is special but all holidays are special! Each one presents itself in its own unique way but none are complete without music...emotional, wonderful kind of music! Prayerful songs, instrumentals, classical tunes...easy listening throughout the day, soft listening at dinnertime. OR jazz up the day with some peppy classics or enjoy the day with Charlie Brown!


Choose YOUR own kind of music for the last hours of food prep, on to the dinner table and throughout the afternoon...



When searching for Thanksgiving music, a few traditional songs always appear in the list.

Thanksgiving dinner that can't be beat...

One from childhood...

One of blessing...

One for giving thanks...

Even a couple that are funny...


Then, there are a few classics with turkey, bird, mashed potato, dinner, or Thanksgiving in the title or lyrics for your playlist...







There are numerous songs appropriate for Thanksgiving...some about being thankful, others about food, many about family and of course, those that are just 'right' for the festive mood of the day!





And the music goes on beating to the rhythm of the changing times...
