Thank you so very much to Joyful Days (pop in there if you have time -a great blog!) for this award- my first ever!

I have been enriched and continue to learn from the incredible strength, faith and fortitude of the amazing Catholics who take the time to blog. Thank you for welcoming me and giving me a place among you. It has been a great grace in my life.

The award says: “These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award.”

I want to pass this award onto:
To Dismas at who only started blogging recently and is going great guns!

To Ponte Sisto Pellegrinaggio crossing the Ponte Sisto one of the first Catholic blogs I came across

To Totus Tuus Family & Catholic Homeschool which I only discovered recently

I also want to offer it to people who I know have received it already but I feel write a great blog- I want to offer it right back to Joyful Days which is a wonderful blog, Lisa at Are We There Yet?, Therese at Aussie Coffee Shop, Esther at A Catholic Mom in Hawaii, Sarah at Ora et Labora - A Faithful Catholic Blog, to Lisa at Catholic Teacher Musings , Grandma K at A Bit of the Blarney, Jennifer at My Chocolate Heart and Tracy at A Catholic Mom in Minnesota (I've already broken the rules by adding far more than 8)


-Also, just a note to say I have added a slightly lengthier video of Bernadette's body from my time in Nevers to my original post as I promised some readers I would. I am only sorry that it has taken such a very long time. From Lourdes to Nevers

I am quite chuffed you ought to bestow this on me - I'm very pleased. I did not think to list all the blogs I felt should have this - so I did a "general: if you don't have it, it's yours" with you and many others in mind. I'm just plain lazy about linking! Thanks for the video! I'm going to go watch now. Blessings in abundance!

Thank you for including me in this award blessing! You made my day. So glad to be friends with you!

I really have been blessed by your blog. If I had just had a portion of your insight and wisdom 20 years ago...ah well...20/20 hindsight...

Looking forward to more visits here.
