Everything is calming down around here… The kitchen is clean, the boys are schooling, the washing machine is staying very busy, and so far no one has thrown up! Thank you all for your prayers! I really appreciate them, and I KNOW they have been a TREMENDOUS help. Please don’t stop sending them, since this may just be the calm before the next storm!

I hope I am not boring you all with too many posts… Usually when hubby is out of town, I catch up on the movies that I’ve been wanting to watch (that he wouldn’t find interesting)… but, having given those up for lent, I am finding myself at the computer more often, trying to feel at least a little bit “connected” to the outside world… In this blogging has been such a blessing, and I just love my blogging friends! I find that bloggers are generally smart, funny, driven, optimistic, confident and opinionated. Who wouldn’t want a blogger friend?

Speaking of personalities, I took a quiz on “How Rare is Your Personality?” the other day (right after taking the punctuation quiz) and had it in my drafts folder to post when I got around to it. However, I just saw that Regina posted a similar quiz, and I was curious to see whether or not the results would turn out the same on it as well…Sure enough they did! It looks like I am an ENFP.

Here’s the first one:

Your Personality is Somewhat Rare (ENFP)

Your personality type is enthusiastic, giving, cautious, and loyal.

Only about 8% of all people have your personality, including 9% of all women and 6% of all men
You are Extroverted, Intuitive, Feeling, and Perceiving.

And here’s my result on the one Regina took:

You Are An ENFP

The Inspirer

You love being around people, and you are deeply committed to your friends. You are also unconventional, irreverent, and unimpressed by authority and rules. Incredibly perceptive, you can usually sense if someone has hidden motives. You use lots of colorful language and expressions. You’re quite the storyteller!

In love, you are quite the charmer. And you are definitely willing to risk your heart. You often don’t follow through with your flirting or professed feelings. And you do break a lot of hearts.

At work, you are driven but not a workaholic. You just always seem to enjoy what you do. You would make an excellent entrepreneur, politician, or journalist.

How you see yourself: compassionate, unselfish, and understanding

When other people don’t get you, they see you as: gushy, emotional, and unfocused

So there you have it… What’s your personality type??


  1. Amy

    I was just about to offer for you to borrow some of the movies I got for my birthday (early, lol). Two versions of Jane Eyre and Emma. I know mt hubby would rather do yard work than watch those… lol

    I will have to do these quizzes later!! I love quizzes, sigh.

    Oh and you will notice that one Mondays, the day Hubby is at school till 9 pm, I have several posts on my blog too, lol.

  2. Juliana

    Your Personality is Very Rare (ENTP)

    Your personality type is optimistic, curious, enthusiastic, and open.

    Only about 4% of all people have your personality, including 3% of all women and 5% of all men.
    You are Extroverted, Intuitive, Thinking, and Perceiving.

    You Are An ENFJ

    The Giver

    You strive to maintain harmony in relationships, and usually succeed.
    Articulate and enthusiastic, you are good at making personal connections.
    Sometimes you idealize relationships too much – and end up being let down.
    You find the most energy and comfort in social situations … where you shine.

    In love, you are very protective and supporting.
    However, you do need to “feel special” – and it’s quite easy for you to get jealous.

    At work, you are a natural leader. You can help people discover their greatest potential.
    You would make a good writer, human resources director, or psychologist.

    How you see yourself: Trusting, idealistic, and expressive

    When other people don’t get you, they see you as: Bossy, inappropriate, and loud

    I’m glad that you are feeling the prayers. And I’m actually glad that you are posting more today it gives me something to do since I’m home all day.

Prayer of Mothers

Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica, a Roman Catholic wife and home educating mother to our nine children. I was home educated myself, along with my eleven younger siblings. I have a special devotion to St. Therese, through whom I have been given much help and many blessings--the beautiful "Shower of Roses" that she has sent my way! Here I will record a few of the blessings I treasure. Please remember that what you see here is just a little glimpse at our lives, so please say a prayer for us, as we continue to strive for holiness.
