Thinking ahead to Christmas…
We’re about a month out, but this request will require some time, so hear me out…
I don’t need anything. No gifts. But I did think of something I’d like.
Although I’m close with my family, do you ever have those moments where you realize you don’t actually know that much about them?
I don’t know my dad’s favourite colour. I don’t know my mom’s favourite food. I don’t know my sister’s favourite song. And then digging deeper, I don’t know their favourite memories as kids. Favourite vacations. Favourite places.
Ok, sure. I could include favourite time of day.
Best moment in their lives.
On the flip side, I don’t know much about their worst moments. The toughest things they’ve experienced. Things they wish they could change. Risks they wish they’d taken.
So. For Christmas (because this gives them a decent amount of time), I’d like to get them all to fill out a sort of questionnaire. They may not love the idea of answering a bunch of questions –
– but down the road, I think we’ll all appreciate having things written down. (I’d make copies for all of us.)
But now I need questions. There are a bunch of websites that offer lists of questions to ask (here’s one of them), but do you have any ideas? Post in the comments below.
Thanks for your help!!!
