When writing a Life Story for someone we have loved, the most memorable moments are not always the "formal" ones. Not recalling the event itself, but the conversations and interactions while engaged at the event seem "highlighted" within our brains. Memories seem to stick best when a casual "funny" or pensive discussion emerges in an unplanned way.
The following prompts are to help jog those kind of memories.
Each of us was born into a family and our particular "birth order" generally has a bearing on how our personality develops.
We each have a view on the world when we were young. The big world affected us in ways that eventually transitioned to our closest friends, chosen activities and life passions
We all know of a story or two that was repeated more than once. Those are the stories that remained a favorite focus throughout a lifetime.
Listing the local schools and post graduation colleges, trade schools or the "hard knocks" type.
A subject that sticks with us past general education is usually incorporated into our learning style
Recognized for our overall learning often created a stepping stone to the next best choice
A Chosen field of "work" in life that can be tied to passion and ambition or plain talent.
The enjoyable parts of our life's work can expand on our personal contributions in this world.
We don't always "toot our own" horn, but when good things have happened for us, we should at least remember them.
Someone with a solid faith has it show up in the daily lives of themselves and others...a belief system, relationships and overall choices.
Each family functions at different levels. The unique hierarchy and interaction create an environment that is often shared beyond their home's four walls.
There are people in our lives that may start out as close friends, but inevitably become like "family".
A hobby is developed when a casual exposure to something new catches our "fancy" and we want more time to explore the fun.
Getting to travel beyond our own back door is a gift that opens our eyes to the big world around us, leaving a lasting impression that we often share with those we love.
People who are not tied to "things" will generally seek out ways to help others.
Expressive statements and sayings are often passed down in the family,... the good one's anyway. They often have a bit of "eternal wisdom" seeking to impart to the hearer.
Gratefulness, appreciation and the lingering wisdom you acquired from knowing, loving and doing life with the person who has died.
Now that the death is starting to sink in, there are things and traits that will have left a hole in my life, and will be deeply missed from now on.
