“The child must know that he is a miracle, that since the beginning of the world there hasn't been, and until the end of the world there will not be, another child like him.” ~ Pablo Casais

    One of the best things I ever learned about myself is that, in the Meyers Brigg Personality testing, I am an ENFP. I won't go into a long, drawn out description, but I will encourage you to take the test and learn about it, and yourself.

    President Obama is the first ever ENFP President of the US

    An interesting fact, many teachers, especially those who teach young children, have an S and J in their personality type. Apparently, there are no good or bad types. However, my type and that type, perceive the world in much different ways, and have much different approaches to learning and teaching. I was told, "if you ever teach, aim for third grade and higher."

    For teacher appreciation week, I made this homemade flower vase... photo of the kids, glued to an applesauce jar, and added flowers from my garden. It's been an interesting year to watch my child go from sweet little kid, coloring pictures in kindergarten, to reading, writing and arithmetic... and homework Monday - Thursday. I guess we all have to grow up eventually, but noone ever said it's easy.

      You always find the best textures...

      I'm intrigued now, I'm going to have to take your test (and see if I come up with an s or j). This was a lovely gift, I'm sure your little one's teacher was thrilled!

      INFJ ~ now I have to go figure out what it means! =D It'll probably say I should have gone into actuary science or something!

      I learned my MBTI when I was in my 20s and it dramatically helped me be comfortable in my own skin. I think it is a remarkable means of appreciating and understanding others. Your vase is beautiful and those flowers are magnificent!

      Got curious about peronality types, so I took the test in one of your links. Turned out to be INTJ. Have to think about if it fits....
