“I Remember Mama”
What did your mother mean to you?
Moms are usually the first and most important persons in our young lives. They provide food and nurture, security and comfort. They teach and encourage, impart values and traditions.
Perhaps you can recall a specific incident that illustrated your mother’s traits. Or perhaps there are a number of such incidents that illustrate just one of your mother’s characteristics. Set the scene: when and where. Who (besides you and your mom) was involved? What happened? Was this something habitual or unique? What was special about what your mom did? Was it special just to you or to everyone?
As an alternative (more generally), recall what your mom meant to you as a youngster and perhaps how your perception of her modified as you got older. Was there a trigger that changed your perception? What was it?
