Mothers Day Messages – Ways Of Documenting Your Mum’s Life

//Mothers Day Messages – Ways Of Documenting Your Mum’s Life

How well do you know your Mum? I don’t just mean her favourite colour or what she likes to eat, but how well you really know her. How many stories have you heard about her life, what was her childhood like, and has she fulfilled her aspirations? Mums have a habit of putting themselves to the back of the line when their family is concerned. So this mother’s day, wouldn’t it be fascinating to know more about your Mum’s life?

Create some true and meaningful mothers day messages with these ideas…

Mothers Day Messages

Journalingmothers day messages 1

Journalling is a fantastic way to get the jumble of thoughts in your head out onto the page. Plus, you are documenting memories at the same time. At the time, when you are living in the moment, you think you will remember things forever, but that isn’t always the case. Writing them down will immortalise them in time.

Here are some journaling prompts to get you started on documenting life with your Mum…

  • My first memory of my Mum is…  
  • I love it when Mum…
  • When I smell … I always think of Mum
  • The first thing that pops to mind when I think of my Mum is…
  • My favourite holiday together was…

You can’t start your journal without the perfect notebook. We just love the Leuchtturm A5 Notebooks for journaling! You can choose from lined, dot grid or blank pages. Grab yours here.

Sometimes it can be difficult to speak the words that are in your heart. So why not have a shared journal that you pass between yourself and your mother. You can put your most personal thoughts and memories in it for a collective family history.

Try these prompts to get you started, they can work for both the mother and child entries…

  • The biggest thing you taught me is…
  • I love you because…
  • I should tell you that…
  • Your superpower is…
  • My favourite tradition with you is…
  • I really appreciate when you…
  • My favourite memory of us together is…

Special messages deserve a special journal to document them in. So why not try the MD Notebook? You can dress the notebook in MD Goat Leather Cover for an extra special touch! 

Documenting Memories

mothers day messages 3

Journalling is a wonderful start, but it can be lovely to save little mementos of your time together too. Why not start with a Traveler’s Notebook so that you have flexibility with the inserts and pop all of your little keepsakes in one safe and secure space?

You can then slot in…

  • Your favourite photos fixed with a perfectly matched washi tape
  • Tokens, foreign coins and other small keepsakes in a Kraft paper folder
  • Add to a journal entry, or add a caption to a photo with a sticky note
  • Clip in a theatre programme or show tickets with a gorgeous paper clip
  • All our notebooks are ink friendly, so you can safely use fountain pens
  • Personalise your notebook pages with any number of gorgeous ink colours for your fountain pen

Interview Her

Your Mum will have a lifetime of memories to share. But sometimes it is difficult to recall stories, or great events without a bit of a prompt to jog your memory. So why not take the time to sit and interview her. Try some of these questions to get the memories flowing…

  • What is your favourite memory from my childhood?
  • What did you love to do as a kid?
  • If you could change one thing in your life, what would it be?
  • What made you fall in love with my Dad?
  • In what ways do you think I am like you, and not like you?
  • Is there anything you have always wanted to tell me?
  • Is there anything you wanted to ask YOUR parents, but never did?
  • Did you fulfill your dreams? Or is there anything I can do to help you get there?


Mothers are precious creatures, you only get one of them in this life. So treasure the time you have with yours. Mothers Day is not the only time to focus on your Mum, but Mothers Day messages are a great way to start the journey of documenting her life.

We would love to hear the ways that you have marked your Mum’s life. Tell us about your journaling or documenting in the comments below. If you are yet to start, head on over to the store to grab one of our gorgeous notebooks and get started this week!
