So proud to introduce you to my mom, Maria Cone!
Hometown: St. Helena Island, SC
Home Base “Must Do’s”: Beaufort waterfront, Hunting State Park and Parris Island.
Meet the family: Husband Steve, dog Hana. Plus 4 kids: Dani, Randy, Jeffrey and Deanna.
Passions and Interests: Currently my passion and interests are in politics. This started in 2013 when Dr. Ben Carson stood before President Obama at the National Prayer Breakfast and said how horrible the Affordable Healthcare Act was and explained that it would hurt people not help them. I began to see how those who were opposed to forced government control were shut up by any means necessary. It was at that moment I believe radicals came out of the closet and took over dividing our country to forced Socialism. As my granddaughter would say I DON’T LIKE IT!
One major goal you’re striving for: To spend each day as if it were my last. Let go of all things or situations that are petty. I almost always put faith and family ahead of conflicts. My feelings are very important to me. I will fight for myself until my last breath.
Best Advice You’ve Received: My mother taught me to do everything in moderation.
What are you reading? What’s your favorite book? Black Raven a western. Surprised me that I would love it. It was mostly about bounty hunters and how they collected cash from wanted posters. It also spoke about the hatred toward the Apache tribe. My favorite books are by authors James Patterson, David Baldacci and Vince Flynn.
Favorite kid-friendly restaurant: Dairy Queen. Had fun with the grandchildren and lots of choices with ice cream. It is also very reasonable.
Go to family dinner: Lasagna. Serves up to 12 people. Add salad and garlic bread it seems to always be a hit. Now that’s a laugh to include ingredients and instructions. They are listed on the box of lasagna but I will tell you buy the best lasagna noodles not store brand it does make a difference.
Favorite family activities: Love playing games. For instance, Apples to Apples or Charades. Lots of laughter with these kind of activities. Living at the beach is always fun. Walking the beach, experiencing sunrises and sunsets and jumping in the pool and storms are extraordinary.
