Blog love

I am always humbled and surprised when a blog reader notifies me that they "awarded" me a blog award. For one, lately I've been a very lazy blogger, and two, I am pleased and surprised that someone actually enjoys my ramblings and rants. =)

Rachel nominated me for a "Premio Dardos Award".
"Premio Dardos" means 'prize darts' in Italian. This award acknowledges the values that EVERY blogger displays in their effort to transmit cultural, ethical, literary and personal values with each message they write. I am supposed to award this to 15 bloggers who I feel show these values. Well, I'm going to stick to five.

This next blog award made me snicker. I'm a grammar snob. It says, "For the coolest blog I ever know." Shouldn't it say, "for the coolest blog I ever knew"? Hee. No mind. Cheryl nominated me for the "Coolest Blog I Ever Know" award. 

I'm going to share some blogs that have really blessed me over the past few months:
Most Inspiring: The Beloved Nie Nie
Encouraging Freedom in Christ: Aimee
Most Gracious: Tonia
The Blog that helps me Breathe: Katherine
Gentle Words Blog: Jewels

:) We love your ramblings and don't have to post often to touch another mother' heart.

I too am a bit of a gramar snob and noticed the grammar issue, LOL

You may not post often, but when you do, I know you'll post something worth reading.

And thanks for the acknowledgment. Means a lot.

I click on you every time I read through my favorite blogs and am always happy when you have posted something.

My former English teacher would have corrected the award to read "The Most Cool Blog I Ever Knew".

Congratulations! You deserve lots of prize darts.

Thanks for thinking of me - you help me breathe, too. (And I bet that blog award originated in my Small Town, or as we say, "from these here parts.")

Lots of love, and wishing we were sharing those incredible-looking cookies over a cup of tea,
