I never got an award before

...at least not a blogging award. Paulie gave hubby and me this You Make My Day Award. Hmmm! Do you think maybe she had a good time on her birthday? We had so much fun, too. Thank you for the honor, Paulie.

Here are the directions which came with the award from Paulie: "Give the award to up to 10 people whose blogs bring you happiness and inspiration and make you feel so happy about blogland! Let them know by posting a comment on their blog so that they can pass it on. "

I am going to choose four.

First of all, back at you Paulie, because I enjoy the joy you find in everyday things and your persistence in seeking out those things that give yourself and others joy. Paulie blogs at Postcards from Paulie.

I regularly find inspiration and fun in Sister Julie Vieira's A Nun's Life. She keeps me connected to the nuns I have known and to the spiritality I need. Her blog is very comprehensive--usually spiritual, but fun and human as well.

Then I like to visit Sister Susan Rose Francois at Musings of a Discerning Woman. Sister Susan Rose is a novice in the congregation that a dear friend is an older member of. Her blog provides me a glimpse of the continuity of the sisters.

Finally, I am inspired as an educator by Jane Little's My Many Colored Crayons. I love how connected she is to her crayons (as she calls her students) and how excited they are about learning.

My son Jeff first got me interested in blogs. I remember what one of his blogosphere friends said after I had posted a comment: "How would you feel if you knew your mother read your blog? Jeff knows." I would post this award to him, too, but he has not been blogging much recently.
