4. Enjoy her favorite music, movies, and books.
Maybe there is a favorite song your mom loved to listen to or sing. Mine liked the 1940’s hit “Sentimental Journey,” often singing it throughout the house.
Listening to her favorite music might help you recall the times your heard her listen to it or sing along. Consider giving copies of it to loved ones in your mom’s honor.
My mom also loved the epic film, Gone with the Wind. So whenever we watch it, we remember how much she enjoyed it. I then retell my adventures of seeing it with her on a Saturday afternoon at our local theater.
My mom was also an avid reader who loved books. Her favorite book was the Bible, by far, so it’s honoring to read her favorite passages, remembering what various Scriptures meant to her.
Doing so also reminds me of her efforts to, “Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it” (Proverbs 22:6).
5. Use something of hers that means a lot to you.
Do you have a favorite item that belonged to your mom? If so, consider wearing, carrying, or using it on Mother’s Day in her honor. Let it serve as a reminder of her throughout the day.
One of my daughters often wraps herself up in my mom’s cozy sofa blanket, which brings back warm memories of time spent with her.
