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.

Why GRAND is so grand!


Thanksgiving falls within the autumnal season of the year. Within that time of year are many of our friends and family in their autumnal years to whom we should all remain thankful. Those to whom being specifically referenced are our grandparentsThere is no wonder why grandparents begin with the word GRAND! It is really no secret. The ancestral chain continues as sons and daughters beget sons and daughters. The bloodline continues. Responsibility shifts with the wisdom and heritage being continuously tapped. While the word itself reflects the next in line in the order of things, it also reflects awe-inspiring feelings. 

Whether one is called Gramma, Gamma, G-ma, Gram, Grammy, Grams or Gramps, Grandad, Grandaddy, G-daddy, Grandpappy, Grandpop OR one of 120 top nicknames for grandparents, the meaning is still the same. The emphasis is G.R.A.N.D. regardless if the word is part of the name or if it is not! 
Gracious. Really specialA good listener. Naturally loving. Devoted to family.

 


This is also SO TRUE for Grandpa!

Remember all GRANDparents who carry such a grand title! They always remember you...
