Why Didn't I Ask?

We’re finally taping our memories of marriage and family events.  Perhaps we’re answering questions our offspring would never ask, but as Zig Ziglar said, “If you ask your parents these questions, you’ll be glad you did.  If you don’t, you’ll wish you had.”

These are suggested by our friend, Bob Tiede:
1.  What are your favorite memories of being with your parents/grandparents?
2.  What did you discover about yourself in grade school?
3.  What did you and your best friend in high school like to do together?
4.  What kind of trouble did you get into at home or school?
5.  Growing up, what did you want to be?
6.  What was your first, out-of-home job?
7.  What first attracted you to your life’s mate?
8.  What is the hardest thing you’ve ever done?
9.  What in life are you most proud of/grateful for?
10.  What’s important to you about God, and how did you learn that?

Will you look for an opportunity to ask (and record) this Q&A, and then share it with family and special friends?
