Take a Family "Mental Health" Day

I still remember my surprise and delight. "We're going where?"

My mother laughed, "We're going to Burns for Dinner. The Pineroom."

Now, this statement would not have been so surprising had Burns, Oregon not been about 125 miles away. The food was delicious and the drive was lovely. But the most precious memory was the way my parents surprised me with unexpected time spent together.
