Remembered life stories is a heartfelt gift – ideal for Moms.
This is Mother’s Day season when we thank our Moms and all the great women who have positively shaped our lives and influenced the individuals we are today. Remembered life stories is a heartfelt gift – ideal for Moms. Collect a special collection of your favorite images of Mom or your Mom’s favorite images of the family. It may be as few as in a shoe box, or as large as a 38-gallon container. Either way, you’ll be reliving life stories as you sort and organize events in your family’s history.
Scan them to create one of the great gift ideas in our 10 Ideas for Great Gifts Using Family Photos. We love them all, from photo puzzles to collages, clothing, tote bags, photo books, jewelry and more.
Click here to select from other FREE videos that have over 40 project ideas that turn your treasure chest of family photos into memorable and one-of-a-kind projects.
You can then present her with a custom-made gift certificate from you offering to help organize her photos. You will be surprised at how often reminiscing about your life stories conveyed through photos opens the floodgates to memory. Suddenly Mom is pulling old photos or family documents out of a drawer to show you something. You will both light up with delight!
Bring grandchildren into the scanning mix and now the remembered stories will have a deeper value and strength among the generations.
As you weed through photos of Mom you’ll naturally develop questions in your mind as you wonder what the backstory is in each print. You’ll naturally wonder what Mom has appreciated about her life and how she views being a mother and grandmother. Consider asking her these top life story questions about motherhood to accompany your digital images. Make a game out of asking Mom the life story questions. Have her pull numbers out of a hat and answer questions randomly. Make sure she pulls #20 eventually. Thankfully, I prevented regret by asking my own mother these questions two years ago. Bring a digital recorder or use the voice recording app on your smart phone (bring your charger with you, as these stories will tear through battery life.)
Does your Mom wish she had a way to gather all these memories? Purchase the Flip-Pal Memory Keeping Bundle for her and watch her create favorite treasures from the family into digital masterpieces.
