Days pass ... seasons change ... months meld into years, and we stand looking back at our liveschildhood memories, exciting moments, crises, and turning points.
In January, we think of new beginnings; in February, of Valentine's Day, first dates, and first kisses. Does ever a June pass without thoughts of our own wedding day? Surely summer evokes backseat memories of seemingly unending trips to grandma's house or the beach. And don't November and December bring to mind family traditions and celebrations cherished through the years?
Like ivy on the garden trellis, our lives are inescapably entwined with the seasons and months of the year. That is why we have designed this mother's memory journal in a twelve-month format. Each month features intriguing questions with space to write a personal answer. Questions explore family history, childhood memories, lighthearted incidents, cherished traditions, and the dreams and spiritual adventures encountered in a lifetime of living.
Whether you choose to complete the journal in a few days, a few weeks, or over the course of a year, the questions will take you on a journey through the times and seasons of your life. This creates a tangible family record to pass on as a gift to a son or daughter. It's a loving memoir of written words, opening a window into a mother's heart.
No matter what your age, memory and reminiscence open a richer, fuller understanding of who you are as a family. Let this memory journal be a starting pointa door into discussing and sharing the unique qualities of your life. May Reflections from a Mother's Heart draw you closer to each other as you share the experiences of a lifetime.
