Elizabeth Kathryn Gerold-Miller from "The Divine Gift of Motherhood" has nominated me for a "Nice Matters" award. I am not sure I am doing this right, but here goes. :)
“This award is for those bloggers who are nice people; good blog friends and those who inspire good feelings and inspiration. Also for those who are a positive influence on our blogging world. Once you’ve been awarded please pass on to five others whom you feel are deserving of this award”.
I in turn would like to nominate the following bloggers who have both inspired and encouraged me:
Dream Mom who is single-handedly raising a beautiful young man to adulthood with love, honor, and integrity, despite his significant special needs. She doesn't just raise "Dear Son", she nurtures, respects, and adores him. I don't even know her real name, or his. But I read there every day and always go away knowing that this life is ALWAYS a blessing.
Janice at 5 Minutes for Mom, who always has some super cool prize giveaway and dispenses advice on motherhood, friendship, and "TACKLES" of the housecleaning kind. Like Flylady, just a whole lot less intense and a whole lot more fun.
Renee, an amazing mom of 4 beautiful kids, including sweet Kennedy, who is fighting Leukemia. Renee lives her life with optimism and grace, such as her joyous description of giving birth to a brand new baby boy in one room, then bringing him and all of his newborn gear to Kennedy's room, where they have all but lived since. It isn't really a blog, but she should blog. Check out Miss Kennedy, the girl's a doll baby.
Tom at Random Thinking, who juggles a job, two kids, an extra awesome wife, and one of the best Down syndrome sites on the net (downsyn.com).
And my dear friend Cindy, who goes way out of her way...often...to help however she can. And who has been a wonderful friend to me.
