Beyond 'Happy Mother's Day': Messages of Love


Mother's Day Message ideas

There’s an old saying: “Life does not come with a manual; it comes with a mother.”

Of all the gifts that life has to offer, a loving mother is the greatest of them all. If you’re lucky enough to have a mom in your life, you know she was always there - from all the packed lunches with napkin notes, to the bandages and hugs after you fell off your bike, to the kisses and cries at your graduation.

Chances are, you love your mom deeply, but you don’t say it often enough. While our superwoman should be honoured year-round, Mother’s Day is a special chance to thank her for all the love and work she put in through the years. 

With Mother’s Day just around the corner, here’s one Mother’s Day gift that can never get old: a sweet card filled with your heartfelt messages. Whether you are trying to make your mom cry or laugh (or cry-laugh), and whether she is your mother, grandmother, or mother figure in your life, these suggestions will make a perfect message to put into your Mother’s Day card. 

Here are some ideas on what to write in a Mother's Day Card for your Mom
