I used to do Mom’s taxes, for the last few years of her life. Charlie did our taxes, but I did Per Bastet’s the way Mom taught me and I did my writing income records the way she taught me.
This year, I was kind of scared, because I had never done OUR taxes before, and I didn’t know how Charlie did them. I finally gave up and did them the way Mom taught me to, probably the way most people do: Documents and proofs of payment separated into Contributions, Taxes, Business Income and Expenses, Rental Income and Expenses, and Income.
So I took my papers to the tax guy and he called me to ask a question. And he said:
Thank you for your organization; it makes my job much easier.
I was so proud! Mom would have been proud of me, too. That makes me happier than you can ever know.

A WRITING PROMPT FROM ME TO YOU: Someone does something the way they were taught by a relative who has passed and has happy results.
