The main rave was the cozy cabin we stayed in at Refreshing Mountain Retreat Center in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. You can view cabin rentals in PA here. The time spent with the family unplugged in the cabin undistracted by the usual overabundance of electronic conveniences was heavenly. We actually had some unusual conversation and got to know each other more. Of course, the cabin came with Wi-Fi and a few modern amenities as well.
There is a saying or meme that you may have seen going around on social media, that says, in a world where you can be anything, be kind. And while we do live in a time where we have so much more freedom and freedom of expression, as well as more equal rights, we can be anything we want to be and do anything we want to do. But how many of us have ‘kind’ on our agenda? As parents, it is so important to make sure that we are raising kind children. Goodness knows we need more of it in the world.
Long after we leave the nest, our moms still go above and beyond for us. Whether it’s a thoughtful card when we’re feeling down or homemade chicken soup when we’re sick, mothers almost always know best! Shari’s Berries recently surveyed 1,500 people with the question, “What do you ask your mom about the most?” and got quite a few interesting responses. Across the board, cooking, parenting and health were the most popular topics.
