Cheryl Malandrinos at "Book Connection" just informed me that "Mommy Monsters" has been the recipient of the Premio Dardos Award. Thanks, Cheryl!
Premio Dardos means ‘prize darts’ in Italian and it is given for recognition of cultural, ethical, literary, and personal values transmitted in the form of creative and original writing.
The rules are:
1) Accept the award by posting it on your blog along with the name of the person who has granted the award and a link to his/her blog.
2) Pass the award to another 15 blogs that are worthy of this acknowledgement, remembering to contact each of them to let them know they have been selected for this award.
I'd like to nominate the following blogs:
Brenda at "Benedict Home" (foster parenting)
Kate and Cathy at "In God's Image" (health and fitness)
"Tucked Beneath His Wing" (on infertility)
Sherry at "Chocolate for Your Brain" (humor and inspiration) Note: Please pray for Sherry, who had a miscarriage on Ash Wednesday.
Sarah at "My Wonderful Life" (parenting special needs children)
Elena Maria at "Tea at Trianon" (history and faith)
Alexandra at "Destinations, Dreams, and Dogs" (Russian adoption blog)
Leticia at "Cause of Our Joy" (special needs parenting and pro-life issues)
Judy at "The International Moms Blog" (transracial family life)
Sarah for her work at "Behold Your Mother", also gets an award for her lovely "Just Another Day of Catholic Pondering"
And, finally, a shameless plug for the blog I'd most like to get exposure for, because it is closest to my heart, the Extraordinary Moms Network!
