Memory Journal for Mom

Dear Fellow Journalers,

Sometimes it’s hard to find a gift for your Mom that she will cherish for years to come, but the memory journal is definitely one. To make this you’ll need a few days to plan out what you’ll write.

You will need the following items:

  • blank journal book
  • pen
  • your memories (see below)
  • collection of favorite quotes
  • small mementoes
  • glue stick
  • photos

Start by brainstorming memories of special times/events shared with your Mom. Some of these could be the one-on-one shopping, special lunches, Mother advice times, or if you are a Mom, the first time she held your child. After you have about 20-50 moments jot them down in a notebook.

At this point, you can decorate your covers. You can refer back to my previous posts for ideas. Start writing in the journal. I started my Memory Journal by writing a letter to my Mom and telling her why I started the journal for her.  I included the reasons why I enjoyed the moments with her, what I learned from her and included other family members in the particular memory. I tried to keep the events in a chronicle order and included pictures/photos with each event. That notebook came in handy because it took me several days to write everything!

Be sure to include a beautiful card with your gift!

Happy Mother’s Day!

‘Til next time,
