“If you were able to travel back to any time in your life and ask a question to anyone at the Thanksgiving table, what would you ask? Who would the question be directed to?”
I heard this question on a radio program. Here are a few examples of what callers said: (The episode was so good, I looked up the resources and have linked them here at the bottom of this post.)
- “My grandma. I would ask for her recipe of her killer butter rolls.”
- “My dad. I would ask him more about the time he spent in the army.”
- “My brother who died of a drug overdose. I would ask him what I could do for him.”
- “My brother-in-law who had financial difficulties one year. We all ignored the problem. I wish I would have asked how he was doing with the stress, instead of ignoring the elephant in the room.”
Does this seem too tough? Maybe your family is like mine, and shies away from uncomfortable conversations. Start the ball rolling at the Thanksgiving table by asking the question from the radio station. I think it would be the beginning of some wonderful conversations this year!
Or use this fantastic list (free printable) of 100 questions to ask your family.
(This is an awesome resource written by Brian Kluth who was featured on the radio program, Chris Fabry Live! He has other resources listed below. )
Other resources by Brian Kluth:
- Want to know more about your family tree? Bring this form to Thanksgiving and ask everyone to fill in their information.
- Want to finally have everyone’s special days in one place? Again, bring this form to Thanksgiving and fill it in. (I bet people will be begging for copies!)
- Make a plan to have a family meeting to discuss your elderly parents. Here is the helpful form.
- Or, if you are interested in purchasing the entire Legacy Family Planner, click here.
I don’t receive anything for this recommendation. I just wanted to share this resource that I found.
So what question would you ask if you could travel back in time to a past Thanksgiving? Who would your question be directed to? Feel free to share in the comments below.
