Questions to ask your mom this Mother’s Day

- Advertisement -

There’s no comfort quite like a mother’s touch. When I was sick recently, even as an adult away from home, I longed for my mom while feeling weak and feverish – her warm hugs and the special soup she always made when I was a child.

I realized that in the whirl of daily life, it’s easy to forget how precious (and limited) our time is, especially with our mothers.

Thankfully, there’s a treasure trove of memories and wisdom waiting to be shared. One of the best ways to deepen that connection with our mothers is through thoughtful questions. This Mother’s Day, I suggest we go beyond the usual chat and spark conversations that create lasting bonds.

Some of these questions were inspired by a random reel I chanced upon on Instagram. Here are suggested things you can ask your mom to get connected:

l What was your childhood like? Through her words, get a glimpse of her experiences, favorite memories, and the lessons that shaped her.

l What were your dreams growing up? Did she pursue them? Understanding her hopes can offer surprising insights.

l What are life’s most important lessons in your eyes? Tap into her wisdom and gain fresh perspectives for your own life.

l What’s your proudest moment? Celebrate her victories, big and small, and appreciate her strength.

l What was your biggest challenge, and how did you overcome it? Her stories of resilience and nuggets of wisdom can inspire you to face your own obstacles.

l What would you tell your younger self? Her reflections might offer valuable guidance for your path.

l What are your hopes for the future? Share in her dreams and create a sense of common purpose.

l What’s your favorite memory of us? Relive precious moments and deepen your emotional connection.

l What do you want your legacy to be? Discuss her values and how she hopes to be remembered.

l What’s the best part of being a mom? Celebrate motherhood and her unique experience as a parent.

Listen with an open heart, journal some answers if you can, and simply savor these conversations. Don’t miss the chance to let your mom know how much you love her not just on Mother’s Day but every single day.
