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.

Bon Appétit & Music Too!

Gobble Gobble Gobble is the tune of the day if the only thing on your mind is the Thanksgiving feast...BUT that is not all Thanksgiving is about. It's only a start...




 gluttons for punishment
partake of the Thanksgiving feast
with abundant choices
one can feel like a gorging beast

try this for something different...
go around the table
fill a plate with all the trimmings
deliver to the disabled
*****
~Ella Wheeler Wilcox

 Thanksgiving is not just about food...it's music too!

music of Thanksgiving
soul felt,  full of emotion
melodies of the heart
spreading joy, inspiration

 it's rhythmic balance in nature
in tune with songs of life
 spiritually rewarding
"whispers of drum and fife"

Thanksgiving is about...

giving thanks for many blessings
received the whole year through
being with family and friends
 cherishing all they do

living, laughing, loving
never forgetting those in need
giving inspiringly
encouraging others indeed

Beyond the Thanksgiving table...

remember blessings said
being heard with a grateful ear
 humbly and earnestly
memorable words to endear

emit emotions from the heart
those that last all year through
solemn thankfulness amid praise
to never bid adieu
