Mother's day is a great time to send your mom a message of appreciation for being your mom. You may not know what to write in your mother's day card. Below are some samples of mother's day card messages that you can use. Make sure you edit one to fit your own thoughts and feelings.
I will always be indebted to you for the sacrifices you make for me and the investments you made in me. Thanks mom!
I know you never expected anything in return for all the work you did as my mom, except for maybe smiles and hugs. A smile and a hug are still my favorite things to give you, even though you deserve so much more.
What can I say that would ever be eloquent enough to express my gratitude for all you have done as my mom?
I have a lot to be grateful for because of you. You have given, guarded, and guided my life since the lucky day you birthed me.
For most people, mothers are the most influential people in their lives. This is definitely true for me. Thanks for being an important and influential person in my life. Happy Mother’s day!
Having you as my mom has been a blessing from God. Only He would know the exact person to
give me the love and discipline I needed while growing up.
No one can build you up when you are feeling
down like your own mother. Also,
no one who can bring you down a notch or two when you start feeling big-headed. Thanks for keeping it real.
Mom, it’s funny how you get smarter with each passing year. You are smarter this year
than you were last year. I wonder why
that is. It must be because you are
growing up and maturing. Happy Mother’s
Only a mother like you could have put up with all of my
shenanigans while I was growing up Only a mother like you would have still
loved me and wouldn't have killed me.
Thanks for not murdering me.
It is not fair that we only celebrate mothers one
day of the year. Mothers sacrifice large chunks of their lives for
their kids. Thank you for your sacrifice!
Behind great leaders, scientists, and artists, you
will usually find a great mother. She made it possible for these people to be
great. Here’s to all the great mothers
of this world.
You have been a great support and a guiding light for me
as I tried to find my way through growing up. Your wisdom continues to be a
great resource for me. Thank you for
knowing what to say when I needed to hear from you. I am sending you my love, admiration, and
Mom, I know we didn't always get along with each other as I
was growing up, and we liked to argue with each other. They say that you fight
the most with those you care about most. Thanks for caring enough to fight with me when I was younger and every
once in a while now.
You and dad definitely had a difficult time with me when I
was growing up, and I appreciate all your understanding and hard work. I still
think your job as mom was more difficult than dad’s job, even though I
appreciate you both.
Keep in mind that even though your mom probably loved your hand made works of art you gave her as a little kid, she will be expecting a meaningful Mother's day message in her card. Think about something that you truly appreciate about your mom and let her know. If that doesn't seem to be working, then use a joke that you know she will enjoy, and at least make her laugh. Getting a reaction, whether crying or laughing, is probably a good sign, as long as they are happy laughs or cries.
