Not (Always) a Slacker

I'm spending the weekend with my 15 year old daughter and a bunch of other teenagers and young adults from Salvation Army corps in Iowa, Nebraska, and South Dakota.  It's one of those youth rallies - with loud music (if it's too loud, you're too old...), motivational speakers (pretending to to be bible preachers) and those inflatable amusement games.

And service.

The teens and young adults gathered here in Norfolk, NE spent this afternoon doing various service projects for the community.  My group of kids took care of the yard of an elderly woman who has difficulty getting around these days.  We raked the yard, pulled weeds from the garden, trimmed the bushes, planted flowers...

Earlier my daughter said to me, "I'm only a slacker when I don't care."   But I know she does. She's not (always) a slacker.
