I couldn’t think of what I should write about, I have been having a lot of trouble actually. I will be honest…I actually googled ideas. The ideas I discovered led me to a list of questions to ask my mother. The questions I found were great! I learnt a few things about my mother when I asked and she answered these questions. Here is a link to the questions I found: 10 Questions to Ask Your Mother Now, I changed them up a little.
Here are the questions and answers…
Now, none of this information will be interesting or valuable to anyone…especially anyone that doesn’t know my mother. She is a beautiful woman and I am so appreciative of her. She has always been there for me in every way. She has always rescued me from drowning in an oceans worth of trouble. She always talks about being a better mother but she is my idol…the best influence I could think of if anyone wants a role model to look to.
I have learned that I need to give mum some space. She deserves all the space she desires. I now know what I can do to contribute to her happiness as she does to mine.
I think that everyone should ask their mothers these questions. Or fathers for that matter. You may be surprised with what you find out, you may gain a new understanding of your parents.
Judith Newman, is the genius who came up with these questions. It may be worth reading her book…You Make Me Feel Like an Unnatural Woman: Diary of an Older Mother.
