E for excellence award

Five of my fellow bloggers have awarded me the E for Excellence Award: Alexandra at Happy Hearts at Home, Adele at Journey to Therese , Dominisumus at We Belong to the Lord, Jean at Catholic Fire, and Heidi Hess Saxton at Mommy Monsters awarded me the E for excellence award. I am so honored by this. Adele's favorite post was "The Holiest Holy Hour". It's one of my favorites too, Adele, as it's a true slice of my spiritual struggles mothering my darling with Down syndrome. I nominate the following excellent blogs:
1. Credo; Catholic Journal is run by a group of youthful Irishmen faithful to their wonderful Irish Catholic tradition, which, by the way, I inherited from my Grams.
2. Pinwheels Jennifer Grafonberg is always professional, always tender when discussing mothering her son with Down syndrome. She has a new book out, "Roadmap to Holland" check it out.
3. The World IMHO Christine and I blog together on Catholic Media Review, which she named. I identify with her strong pro-life perspective, and I love the way she interjects her comments into the text of a fraudulent point of view. She loves the truth and proclaims it well.
4. Et Tu Jen is an outstanding writer, who seamlessly blends her perspective into her posts without being self-abosorbed. Not an easy task for a bl0gger. I love her scorpion sightings!
5. Castle of the Immaculate - Mary Vitamin, aka Helen has a blog that has a calming effect on me like an afternoon of recollection. She has a beautiful new baby to ooh and ahh over too!
6. Cajun Cottage Under the Oaks -I'm fascinated by the delightful Cajun Catholic Culture, and Cay brings it to life with her wondeful recipes and family anecdotes.
7. By Sun and Candlelight- any time I'm looking for great nature studies, this is where I go, Dawn and her family are so in touch with the natural world, and her bookshelf is wonderful.
8. The Divine Gift of Motherhood- Elizabeth is so graceful and professional in her writing; she reminds me of the privelege of being both a mother and a writer.
9. Behold Your Mother-Jasna Gorak has some wonderful insights into how to actively participate in the Latin Mass.
10. Fatima Now- Pascendi discusses how to incorporate Catholic social teaching into our daily lives, always a thought-provoking read.
11. Christina Dunigan, who teaches English as a Second Language in Korea, has four different blogs, and always leaves insightful comments on my pro-life posts which change the way the issues are framed. She goes by the handle "Granny Grump", yet she's no Granny!
BY accepting this Excellent Blog Award, you have to award it to 10 or more people whose blogs you find Excellend Award worthy. You can give it to as many people as you want-even those that have received it already, but please award at least 10 people.

Thank you so much! I've been trying to think of which blogs I would like to pass the award on to. This is the sort of thing that keeps me up at night. I'm afraid I'd lie awake all night thinking, "Oh no, I forgot that one, and that one!" :)

Anyway, thank you so much. I am honored.

Thank you for this honor! I will have to think long and hard about my nominations. It would be easier if I could just name all your blogs - that would cut my job in half - but you said "blogger" not "blogs" (LOL). So I guess I will have to choose the "best of the best".
