If you wrote a book about your Mom's life, what would you include in it? The story would have to start many years before you were born. Childhood friends, neighborhood stores, and sibling rivalry would be just a few subjects you might cover. Now while you might not be ready to create a best-selling novel, it is a great idea to ask questions that will help you capture Mom's legacy. Here are a few to start with.
- What was it like growing up with your siblings? Social skills are first developed at home. Did your aunts and uncles help make Mom a stronger person? Or maybe they were the kind of brothers and sisters that made a person long for better days.
- Who were your favorite teachers in school? Some teachers are just down right annoying. But there were likely two or three that showed kindness and helped Mom make some of her biggest decisions.
- How did you and Dad fall in love? By the time you arrived, your parents seemed to be a ready-made package. Take the time to find out how the pursuit started and what drew them to one another?
Once you get the ball rolling with these simple questions, you will open the door to learning so much about the woman who nurtured you all these years. Mom will be touched that you are interested in her life.
