Excellent Award…

by | Jan 28, 2008 | Awards | 5 comments

Kathy at The Daily Grotto just sent this award my way. Thank you Kathy for nominating me, I am in such wonderful company!

The rules: By accepting this Excellent Blog Award, you have to award it to 10 more people whose blogs you find Excellent Award worthy. You can give it to as many people as you want but please award at least 10. Thank you out there for having such great blogs and being such great friends! You deserve this! Feel free to award people who have already been awarded…

I am going to pass it along to:

  1. Knit Together in Love, Amy was the one who initially got me interested in blogging.
  2. Trina, at Merryheart Acres, is one of my best friends, who moved too far away, too long ago… I’m so excited that she has started a blog, and it is EXCELLENT!
  3. Regina, she is always making me laugh!
  4. My cousin Margaret, it’s so nice to keep “in contact” once again! I love her ability to create such interesting blog posts. They are such fun to read.
  5. Unam Ecclesiam, my hubby’s blog, is definitely excellent, in my TOTALLY UNBIASED opinion!
  6. Sweetness and Light, is one of my FAVORITE blogs. I still think Meredith REALLY SHOULD HAVE WON the award for best cyber-buddy! In my mind she did. 🙂 (I know Kathy awarded you already… but the rules allow me to send it your way too!)
  7. Just another day in Paradise is another of my favorites, and I just love Ruth. Her blog is wonderful!
  8. Waltzing Matilda never ceases to amaze me with her creativity!
  9. I just found Totus Tuus Family & Homeschool, or rather she found me., which I am really enjoying.
  10. And last I am nominating the Josephine County Right to Life blog. It’s brand new and is has many, many wonderful pro-life links and videos! I encourage you all to link to it in your sidebars, if you can!

I wanted to nominate so many more, there are some truly wonderful blogs out there through which we are so blessed. Thank you!

    silly, you dont have to nominate me just cuz we are buds! but since you did…
    I’d like to first thank God because through him all things are possible. And my wonderful husband who has been there through all this blogging. And my great friends who help provide material. But most of all the fans. Yes, you great fans, give yourselves a round of applause, because without you, there would be no awards.

Prayer of Mothers

Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica, a Roman Catholic wife and home educating mother to our nine children. I was home educated myself, along with my eleven younger siblings. I have a special devotion to St. Therese, through whom I have been given much help and many blessings--the beautiful "Shower of Roses" that she has sent my way! Here I will record a few of the blessings I treasure. Please remember that what you see here is just a little glimpse at our lives, so please say a prayer for us, as we continue to strive for holiness.
