Better Late Than Never! THE NICE MATTERS AWARD

I feel quite complimented that Angie at Many Little Blessings nominated me for this bloggy award. Thanks, Angie! I hadn't even heard of this one before. Her post was actually from September 3rd. I've been a slacker & I'm sorry!

Since I wasn't familiar with this one, let me offer what Angie wrote about the award:

Here is what the Nice Matters Award is all about: “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 seven others whom you feel are deserving of this award."

I think seven will be difficult to come up with. Not that there aren't at least seven wonderful bloggers, but I recently also listed some of you for the Rockin Blogger Award. I also don't want to leave anyone out!

Here is my best. I nominate:
-Andrea from Andrea's Blog. I'm new to reading her blog, but I've loved it each visit, and she makes me think. I'm impressed with how much Andrea seems to stick with her beliefs and knowing of what is right, even when the world is doing otherwise.

-Crystal from Proud Catholic Mommy. I'm also new to her blog, but a friend recommended it and I am so happy she did. :) I love Crystal's posts, and on top of it all, she's a fellow Weight Watchers member! Not to mention we live close to each other. SOON we will meet irl.

-Sarah from In Light of the Truth. I've been reading Sarah's blog for a while now. She is so patient and thoughtful, and best of all, you can really see the way God works through her in her posts. I am humbled every time I visit. Thank you, Sarah.

-Mary from Mary's Voice. I first "met" her through the Catholic Mom group we chat on. Next came her blog. I sure hope what follows is meeting in real life! She's an inspiration, raising a large family in today's world, and being such a faithful Catholic.

-Jennifer from The Pfaffl House. Sorry to choose you again, but what can I say?! When you know a person irl, you know how great they are! Friends since the 6th grade, and now our boys are becoming friends, too. I love ya!

-Christina from Confessions of a Hot Carmel Sundae. Another one I've read for some time now. Christina is an exemplary Catholic, and I love reading about her "hypertot" and family life. Not to mention she also writes nicely on matters of faith and current events. ;)

-Steph from Adventures in Babywearing. I know she's been nominated for pretty much every blog award there is, but it's for good reason. She has a wealth of info for us moms, she's down to earth, and hosts awesome contests. ;) Every "mom post" she writes, I nod my head in agreement as I read.

There's my seven. It's not easy picking just seven, I tell ya!

Thank you all for being a part of my blogging circle. Those I know in person, I hope to see you again sooner than later. And those I have yet to meet, I sure hope to meet you one day soon.

You should consider showing your email address on your profile so that when I can reply to your comments through that. So sorry, I'm leaving a random comment here... In reponse to your question about efforts in marriage, I absolutely don't think my husband puts as much/any effort as I do. I pray that he would and that we would both respond to each other's needs, to put effort into showing each other love. That's one of the big things I pray for, along with everything else. A marriage seminar we watched (Love & Respect) says the more you do for your husband (by respecting him), the more he'll do for you (by showing love), even without that being your intent and even when you don't feel like. So... that's what I try for. Because that's what I'm called to do, and I love my husband and try to make his life better. Hope this helps!
