Take a peek into our life as a big family in Houston, TX. Welcome to the electronic journal for the Texas T family. This blog was created to share some moments of our life with you. Often having 11 children, homeschooling, and being incredibly active in our Catholic faith we are asked “How do you do it?” We invite you to look around, sign up as a follower, and peek into the answer to that question. Remember we are not a perfect family; but I won't post the bad stuff.
Thanks for visiting, Neen

Time for reflection
So the 6Th came and went. As most Catholics know you must keep out your decorations until January 6Th. I was able to get the decorations boxed up and ready for storage without too much effort this year. I find that as I put the decorations away, I get very reflective. I am probably too busy as I get them out to think about anything but my to do list. I have so many questions for myself as I box the trinkets up. I think of my friends Linda, Kelly and Natalia. When they packed Christmas decorations did they even think that they would not be here the next year when the items were open? Did Natalia's mom wonder if either of her children would be gone the next year? I am sure not, we don't think about those things.Everyone knows that I want to move. I wonder, will I unwrap these items in this house next year or somewhere else? What does the year hold for us? How will our lives have changed 11 months from now? Will we all be here? Will we be happy? Will we be more fit? Will we have any more children? Will our finances be better or worse? What new friends will see the tree next year? So many questions that only He knows the answers to. I resolve, as I wrap up the last box, as I always do to just leave it up to HIM.
