While undertaking the daunting task of organizing my files (this hasn't been done since my daughter was born, 2+years ago!) I came across an article I tore out of the Real Simple Nov. 2005 issue. The article, titled "Getting to Know You", was written by Erik Jackson and is a kind of roadmap made up of intriguing questions, some many people would never think to ask, yet would love to know about their closest relatives.
Here is an excerpt:
The Kind of Life You Lived
• What were the best years of your life?
• What was the hardest decision you've made?
• What are the most important things in life?
• What do you consider to be your strongest character traits?
• What traits or habits do you wish you didn't have?
• Do you believe that people can change?
• Do you believe in God?
• Has life made you more cynical or more hopeful?
• What do you consider to be the most important world events of your lifetime?
• Do you think life now is harder or easier than when you were young?
• If you could do anything over in your life, what would it be, and what would you do differently?
• What are you most proud of?
• What do you hope to be remembered for?
