Next week’s junior youth group needed to be switched from Thursday to Wednesday. H2O (Help 2 Others), our city’s service-learning club for youth, is having their family and friends party on Thursday evening. Most of the Empowered Souls participate in H2O, and plan to be there.

Jennifer (the mother of one of my junior youth) asked me, “Are you going?”

“I don’t know, I hadn’t thought about it. I wasn’t invited or anything.”

“It’s friends and family night. You’re family now, so I’m inviting you. Do you want me to pick you up?”

Of course I’m going. It’s for my family. I wouldn’t miss it for the world.
