#11 You are so funny, so wise and so sweet, and you deserve all the happiness in the world. It’s not easy to raise children – but you make it look like a piece of cake. You are an amazing mother – you’ve raised two amazing kids. Happy Mother’s Day, friend!

#19 This Mother’s Day, I want to tell you that you are a great mother. You don’t always feel like it — not up there on the pedestal that society puts us on — yet you do an amazing job despite all the challenges life hands you. Happy Mother’s Day, friend!

#20 I know motherhood is hard work. This Mother’s Day, I want to tell you that you are doing an amazing job as a mother. You are always there for your children when they need you most. Your love is pure, warm, and genuine. I am so thankful to have a friend like you. Happy Mother’s Day!

#21 The most important gift you can give your kids is yourself – your time and attention. And yes, that sometimes means letting them know that there are things about them that you don’t like too much. But there is no mom who does that better than you do. Happy Mother’s Day!

#22 I know motherhood isn’t always easy. But you’re an amazing mom. You love your kids so much, and you look out for them like nobody else can. Do you know how many friends tell me that my “kids don’t understand me,” or how often I hear that my kids are “too young to be involved in their parent’s life?”? Well, I love hearing those comments from other people because it shows me that my “Momma Bear instincts are working! And no one can take those away from you.

#23 Your kids may not always show you their appreciation, but I do and always will. You are a wonderful mother. And I am an even better friend because of the way you love me and nurture me. To celebrate Mother’s Day, I just want to tell you how much I admire your many beautiful qualities and how thankful I am to have you in my life.

#24 Some mothers spend all day cooking or cleaning up after a houseful of kids; others make sure that the needs of their families are met every moment of every day; still others work so hard at raising children that they don’t have time for themselves. And then there are mothers who are in two places at once! I can’t think of anyone more amazing than you, my friend. Happy Mother’s Day!

#25 Motherhood is full of tough responsibilities and sometimes very difficult decisions. But every one of your achievements is worthy of praise, even when it doesn’t feel like you’re getting much recognition. You are an amazing mother who loves her children with all her heart. Happy Mother’s Day!

#26 The excellence and balance you bring to motherhood is as good an example as any for me to try to follow. You know how to manage your time, juggle your priorities, and make the most of everything you do. You are a great parent and a wonderful friend. Happy Mother’s Day!

#27 You are the kind of mom who never forgets to say “I love you,” make a homemade card, or bring home a special surprise. You are the kind of mom who can make chicken noodle soup better than any restaurant. You are the kind of mom who is always on time to every school program and sporting event. Happy Mother’s Day!

#28 Mother’s are the best people in the world! I know that you are a wonderful mother, and you deserve to be treated well on this day. May this Mother’s Day be a special one, because I think we all know how hard it is to actually buy someone gifts. Happy Mother’s Day to the best mother ever!

#29 I am so glad that we have mothers like you in our lives. You love your kids so much, and have been there for them through thick and thin. Thank you for being a kind-hearted person who does amazing things for your family every day.

#32 Sweet friend, I have so many wonderful things to say about you. From the very beginning we’ve been there for each other. We’ve held each others hands through good times and bad. We’ve laughed, cried and loved together. You are a wonderful mother and one of my best friends! Happy Mother’s Day

#33 A lot of people will tell you that you can’t handle everything by yourself; that a mother needs a husband or partner to help her raise her children in the right way. But as far as I’m concerned, you are doing an amazing job on your own. You are a wonderful, loving mother and I couldn’t be prouder of you. Have a wonderful Mother’s Day!

#34 I may be a little biased, but I think you are the best mother in the whole world. You give your time and energy to your kids and do whatever it takes to rescue their spirits. You give so much of yourself, that often you feel like you’re not getting enough back. I love you! Happy Mother’s Day!

#35 Life isn’t easy. Some days, we all feel like we’ve had more than our share of hard knocks. But you keep on going, you keep on being there for your family, and you make it through the hard times. I admire that about you. Happy Mother’s Day!

#36 You are an angel mom to your children, and they are the most cherished gifts God could have given you! Thank you for loving them so well and giving them a happy home. Happy Mother’s Day!

#37 You have it all together, whether you feel like it or not. You are a wonderful mother and a great friend. I’m so grateful to have you in my life! Happy Mother’s Day!

#38 I bet you didn’t know that there are some magical creatures called “mom’s helpers.” You, my dear friend, are one of them! You have been there for me through all the ups and downs of motherhood, and have made it possible for me to be the best mom I can be. Thank you for everything you do. Happy Mother’s Day!

#39 Just like all mothers, your love is unconditional. Just like all mothers, you’re here for your kids no matter what. I think that’s something to celebrate this Mother’s Day—not just because it’s a Hallmark holiday, but because we can recognize the wonderful work that you do every single day! Happy Mother’s Day to the best mother of all!

#40 In my life, there have been lots of incredible inspirations. You are definitely one of them! Happy Mother’s Day!

#41 Your children are going to remember how much fun you were as a mom, not how many toys you got them or how big their birthday parties were. This Mother’s Day, please remember that an awesome mom doesn’t need any grand gestures. She just needs her friends and family to make her feel special on the day she was born to do exactly what she does best – be an amazing mom! Happy Mother’s Day!

#42 Motherhood has brought out the best in you, and a lot of people are lucky to have you as their mother. You’re a beacon of love and inspiration, not just for your children, but for all of us who know you. Thank you for being such a positive role model! Happy Mother’s Day!

#43 It is amazing how many strengths and traits mothers have in common. We always think about love when we think about mothers, but there’s also strength, dedication, wisdom…and perhaps more surprising qualities like courage, patience and calmness—all excellent traits to have! They make this world go ‘round. Happy Mother’s Day, my dear friend.

#44 Motherhood is one of the most important jobs in the world. It’s a job you handle with elegance and grace! I am so thankful to have you as my friend and as a mother to your kids. Happy Mother’s Day!

#45 Yes, your friends mean a lot to you, but they pale in comparison to what their moms mean to them. You are an amazing mom, and that’s just one of the reasons we love you so much. Happy Mother’s Day, my dear friend!

#46 A truly great mom isn’t the one who has given birth to the most kids or the one who has spent the most time as a mom; it is the one who has given her heart and is good at. She gives and cares; she encourages, protects, celebrates and loves every moment. Happy Mother’s Day!

#47 Don’t let your kids tell you that Mother’s Day is a time to “worship their mother.” It wasn’t too long ago that they wanted you to “worship them.” Instead of sending only one message, think about what it would mean if you sent multiple messages. Mother’s Day shouldn’t be a one-day event; it should be an ongoing celebration of everything you do for your children everyday.

#48 I want to thank an incredible mother for her unconditional love and support. She has been there for me through some really rough times in my life. I don’t know what I would do without her. She is my rock, my best friend and the most special person in my life. She holds my heart in her hands. Happy Mother’s Day, Mom. I love you!

#49 You may not be the perfect mom, but you are a great one. And that makes all the difference in the world. Happy Mother’s Day, my dear friend. You are the epitome of what a mom should be.

#50 If a mother’s love could be captured in words and told, what a better world this would be. But since it can’t be told, it must be shown. You have shown your love to everyone you know and you deserve the best Mother’s Day ever! Happy Mother’s Day!
