[Personal Post] My Mother’s Day Interview With My Mom


My mother & I (2013)

As the owner of theJasmineBRAND.com, I don’t share many personal moments, with the exception of a few holidays. Each year, I interview my mother for Mother’s Day. It’s one of my favorite holidays and is the perfect opportunity to honor your mother or whomever was instrumental in playing that role in your life. Check out our conversation below.

What do you enjoy most about motherhood?

I enjoy most about motherhood is when I look into my daughters eyes and say I love her, her knowing she is truly loved.

What’s one of the biggest mistakes mothers do with their daughters?

The biggest mistakes mother do with their daughters is failing to share their own mistakes, poor choices and fears.  Not all  rebounds occur through  their own strength. Give them credit for their good choices and embrace that fact mistakes will occur, fear is natural and choices are yours to make and own.

You have an adult daughter (me!), how has parenting changed, since raising me?

Parenting has changed since raising you; there appears to be less boundaries between parent and child and more social influences which also appear to dictate their behaviors. In times past, parents dictated their child’s behavior. Not all of the “dictating” was good but it was always a concerted effort for the best outcome to occur.


My mother, Great-grandmother & I (2013)

If you could give single mothers, one piece of advice, what would it be?

Single mothers one piece of advice; invest  FIRST  the well-being of your child emotionally, educationally and spiritually…..no short cuts..

What one piece of advice would you always like for me to remember?

One piece of advice I would like for you to remember is RELAX and always take time to pray. God is so far ahead of us, all you have to do is stick with your gift and the process.

What’s your biggest regret?
I regret not having at least one more child.
Favorite TV show or movie.
Talk To Me
Favorite song that reminds you of your childhood.
Sly & the Family Stone: STONE SOUL PICNIC
In one word, describe the mother daughter relationship you have w your mother.
If you could ask God one question, what would you ask?
Did I fulfill my purpose you designed for me?
