My first ever nomination!

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 (

And my dear friend Cindy, who goes way out of her help however she can. And who has been a wonderful friend to me.
