What memories do you have of your mom doing things with her friends?
Years ago, in a specific friendship workshop I used to lead, I would ask adult women to write down everything they could remember about their moms and the topic of friendship:
- Who did she hang out with, that you remember? Did she have her own friends or was it more about getting together with other families?
- Do you remember her going away for weekends with friends? If so, what did she say to you about those weekends away? Do you remember seeing photos?
- Do you remember her going out for girls nights often? What would they go do? Who went with her?
- Can you remember any advice or comments she ever made about friendships? Hers? Or yours? Or just in general?
