The Octamom Award

by | Jan 6, 2009 | Awards | 11 comments

Thank you Regan for this most delicious award!

Before I post the rules, for The Octamom Award, grab your chocolates!

1) You must eat a piece of chocolate in honor of accepting The Octamom Award.
2) You must eat yet another piece of chocolate when you put the award on your blog.
3) Try to go by and see the other good folks I’m going to put a link up for.
4) Feel free to add or subtract from the rules as suits your fancy…except that chocolate one…I must insist on that.

With that I am sending this on to the following bloggers:

Michelle and Michele
Christie, Christine and Christine
and to Sara, Sarah and Sarah

Oh, I could just keep going and going, so since it says I can, and since I don’t want anyone to feel left out— if you also want the award, leave your name and link in the comments and consider yourself awarded! Don’t forget to eat the chocolate, it’s a rule!!

    LOL — I was trying to figure out exactly what this award is about (besides treating people to a little bit of chocolaty goodness) :), and then it hit me: I so totally deserve this award!!! The original one is about how the Octamom never gets around to posting the awards she receives from others … and I am sooooo guilty of that!!!

    I don’t eat sweets, but I’ll make sure my kids get some chocolate in my honor. You are so sweet!

    (And someday I may even proclaim to the world that, ages ago, you gave me the “I love your blog” award — undeserved though it may be! :)– and, of course, I love your blog, too!!!!)

    I’m with Eileen, I couldn’t figure it out either…then thought this is perfect for my blog as It will take me forever to post the darn thing!!!

    No chocolate here either, I’ll explain later. 🙂

    Thanks it’s the perfect award for me!

  6. Jessica Gordon

    I think we are all guilty of that Eileen and Jamie!! It know I have a few “awards” out there that I never got around to posting, and probably never will! It doesn’t mean we don’t like receiving them, and they are great ways to let others know of some of our favorite blogs! =)

  7. Angela

    I’m still lost . . . but thank you Jessica for including me. I ate several chocolates in honor of everyone!

  8. The Wades

    I will definitely eat the chocolate! 🙂 Thanks for thinking of me.

    i must admit, i had to do some researching before i “got” what this award was for-besides just eating chocolate-i believe the original octamom was a mom to 8 kids and busy as she was, had awards she took forever to post-hence it became an award for “busy, yet great, moms to multiple children”. make sense? =)

    ps. hope to see you post some pictures in a ball gown and jewels after all these awards you have been receiving!!! it must feel like oscar night!
    happy new year and GOD BLESS.

    Thank you, Jessica! 🙂
    If you’ll excuse me, there are a couple little chocolate coins left from St. Nicholas Day that are calling to me.

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.
