What To Say in a Mother’s Day Card
Whether you’re gifted with words or not, deciding exactly what to write in a Mother’s Day card can feel like an unsolvable puzzle. Sometimes the space provided is too small to describe the love you feel for your mother, whereas at other points, that space feels like the Grand Canyon.
Our advice is to keep it simple. As Hallmark points out, “Sometimes the truest things are the simplest things.” So, start with something easy, like:
- Happy Mother’s Day, Mom. I’m so happy you’re my mother.
- You may be my mom, but you’re so much more to me. You’re my friend, my mentor and everything in between.
- Mom, I want you to know that I see the sacrifices you made for me as I was growing up. Thank you.
- Thanks for being my mom! I know it wasn’t always easy.
- Now that I’m grown, I appreciate everything you’ve done for me. I love and admire you!
You can also use some humor in your note if that is natural for you. And, if your relationship with your mother is complicated, don’t feel like you have to write an over-the-top statement of love. Be sincere and write about what’s positive between the two of you.
Whether your mom likes tasteful cards with beautiful prints, a good pun or an off-color joke, we’ve found some funny and unique Mother’s Day cards to bring a smile to her face this year.
