The envelope, please ... Excellent Blogger Award

I can't believe it! My first award!

Thank you to my 'blogging buddy," Kathleen, who nominated "Mommy Monsters" (she said it was for "Silent Canticle," too) for this -- my very first -- award. ("E" also stands for "elated...") I'd like to take this opportunity to thank my blogging friends -- you know who you are -- who have helped me become a better blogger, and a stronger writer.
The rules: Recipients of the Excellent Blog Award must award it to 10 more people whose blogs you find "Excellent 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.
Those that I nominate (including those who have helped me directly, and those who inspire me to do better):
Donna (who could use a little good news right now)
Lisa (a continual source of inspiration)
Letitia (Especially but not only for her work on Catholic Media Review)
Patrice (Especially but not only for her "Moments of Beauty" project)
Kate (Who is hosting this week's Catholic Carnival -- thanks!)
And two sites that I just find to be a continuously helpful resource:
Jim Manney (who keeps me in touch with the book world)
Genevieve Kineke (who keeps me in touch with the rest of the world)

Thank you, Heidi! I'm so honored! I'll work on my list ASAP, somewhere between math and dance lessons. ;)

God bless!
