One of America's Premier Mothers, Jill Davis of Scrapbook.com, shares some tips on preplanning your memory preservation for a great day and a great memory.
Davis, who founded the company in the heart of the Internet implosion, has an idea of what it takes to raise a family ... and a company. Her sons, one who was a Goldman Sach's analyst and another who was in law school, have made the company a financial success and a neighborhood where 100,000 scrapbook fans gather regularly.
Here's her ideas to make some memories this weekend.
1) Get out your camera and take pictures. If you use a digital camera you can share the photo with all family members. Some shots to consider:
Mom with kids
Mom with grandkids
Mom and Dad
Three generation pictures
2) Do a mini interview with your mom and write her answers in a handmade card/booklet and give to her. Save a copy for yourself. Possible questions to ask:
What were your hopes and dreams for me?
What were your fears in raising me?
Who helped you become a mom? How did they help you?
What are your greatest accomplishments as a mother?
Who were/are your mentors/role models?
What would you like to live over again?
What one piece of advice would you give to mothers all over the world?
3) Write a letter to your mom and consider including one or some of the following. Be sure to save a copy for yourself:
10 things she taught you
10 attributes you love about her
One cherished memory that always comes to mind when you think of her.
One thing about her physical-self which stands out and you see in yourself or your offspring.
