Happy 9th Birthday

Today is our second daughter’s 9th birthday. Where has the time gone?

She’s our nurturer, the one who cares for the people and animals around her. She is our sensitive soul, the one who comes to me crying because she had to make a hard decision about who to play with. She’s the most like me in some ways, the one who wakes up early each morning and races to get her schoolwork done without any complaint. And she’s the most like Sean in other ways, racing him on her bike and asking for a day of skiing for her birthday. She’s creative and sweet, beautiful and kind, intelligent and funny.

Happy birthday, sweet girl!

  1. I discovered the Enneagram over a year ago and really like it, probably even more than Myers-Briggs, for the reasons Meagan Francis described. I’ve become much more aware of my strengths and weaknesses, and more importantly WHY I do the things I do. As a side note, I’m a 9, my husband is a 1 (he didn’t take the test, but he has 1 written all over him!) which is very “9” of me to be married to my opposite–we’re poetic like that :). My only complaint with the Enneagram institute is the New Age overtones that commonly grace their daily emails :). Other than that, it’s been a really helpful tool in keeping myself more aware of my actions and motivations. Have you used the Enneagram before? What do you think of it?
