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,

Good Reads

Dear Fellow Journalers,

There is a book that I have on my desk to remind myself to do one kind thing a day no matter how I feel or what is going on in my world. The book “Random Acts of Kindness” is a compilation of short stories interwoven with inspirational quotes. The book was published by Conari Press in 1993. While I am sure that many more like it have been published since, this paperback speaks volumes about the human spirit and how one simple act of kindness can change a person’s life forever.

There is one story related by Mrs. Nat King Cole that really touched my heart. This book is one to savor and inspire you to practice Random Acts one day at a time.
