Share Article

It's Mother's Day on Sunday and you want to make it special and long lasting.

One of America's Premier Mothers, Jill Davis of, 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

                Candid shots


                Group shots

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.
