Capturing Mom's Legacy: 3 Questions To Ask

Posted by Ruby Cemental on Jul 11, 2017 5:30:00 PM

Smiling-family-with-grandparents-album-LR.jpgIt seems like Mom was never a kid. She has always been there nurturing and supporting her family. But, the fact is, she had so many experiences before she became Mom. Now that she's a senior, it is a great time to show her you care and capture her legacy by asking the right questions. Here are a few seemingly simple inquiries that can open the door to endless conversation.

  1. What was your hometown like? Every corner of the earth has its own unique personality. Some youths embrace their surroundings and fit right in. Other young ones dream of greener pastures and leave their hometown as soon as possible. Find out what Mom's environment was like and how it affected her. 
  2. What kind of activities did your family participate in? Grandpa and Grandma might have been a ton of fun when you were growing up. But maybe they weren't the best at planning recreation when they raised their own family. Or perhaps Mom played games, went to carnivals, and traveled. The only way to find out is to ask. She probably has many fond memories to share.
  3. How did you and Dad meet? There is likely an intricate tale behind the union of the pair that cared for you. The answer to this question might also give you a lot of insight into some of the observations you made as you were growing up. 

You can probably think of so many more questions as you are discovering more about your dearest Mom.
