The ever so sweet Rosemary has nominated ME for a Nice Matters Award. She obviously can't hear the evil thoughts that frequently pop into my head!
When I read The Story of a Soul by St. Thérèse of Lisieux, I was really blown away by her "little way." I could understand why this text propelled her cause to sainthood. I thought I was doing well by not voicing those less than polite opinions. And here is a woman who wouldn't even nicely ask someone to please stop splashing her with water as they washed the laundry. She preferred to just happily offer it up. When I think of nice, I think of her, and I know I don't rate anywhere near that!
“This award is for those bloggers who are nice people; good blog friends and those who inspire good feelings and inspiration. Also for those who are a positive influence on our blogging world. Once you’ve been awarded please pass on to seven others whom you feel are deserving of this award”.
I'm pretty sure I don't read mean people's blogs, so don't be offended if I haven't listed you here. I think you are all nice. And for those of you I have listed, I'm willing to bet you don't feel you can compare with St. Thérèse! Here we go:
Kristen Laurence with Small Treasures
Margaret the Minnesota Mom
Esther, A Catholic Mom in Hawaii
Lillian at Smithflections
Michele, Queen of the Castle
Celeste on The Great Adventure
Melissa with Bountiful Blessings
