It takes a special woman, a mom, to take care of a family. She nurtures, teaches, comforts and loves her children unconditionally. Even after children have grown up and left the nest, they look back with gratitude and love for their moms.
But how do you show gratitude for a mom? You can share your thanks with the world by writing a heartfelt message, but what are some sample messages to say thank you for mom? I did some research, and here are some great examples.
#1 Thank you for the gift of life. You have given me the greatest life a person could ever ask for. I am so grateful that you are my mother, and I can’t thank you enough for everything you have done.
#2 I don’t know what I would do without you mom. You have been there through every step of my life, from birth to now. Mom, being your child has been an honor, and I hope that we will always be as close as we are today.
#3 Thank you is never enough to say to my mom because she deserves way more than it implies. Thank you for not only giving me life, but also for teaching me how to live it well.
#4 While looking back over the years may have its share of ups and downs, every moment with you is something to treasure. Thank you for all of the love and support you have given me throughout my life. I hope that our relationship continues until the end of time.
#5 Thank you for being there whenever I needed someone most, whether it was to offer advice or a helping hand. You are an inspiration to me, mom, and I can’t thank you enough for your selflessness!
#6 I know that I may not always say it as often as I should, but thank you so much for everything that you have done for me over the years. Every day I think about all that we have been through together, and just how far we both have come since then. Happy Mother’ Day!
#7 As a human being, it takes great courage to face obstacles head-on with unwavering determination. As a mother, it takes much more. Thank you for being the role model I needed when I was a young girl, and thank you for showing me how to be a strong woman.
#8 I know that sometimes in life we have struggles between what’s best for ourselves and what’s best for our families. Thank you mom, because if not for your sacrifices, neither of us would be where we are today.
#9 Thank you so much for always having my back, even when no one else did. You took care of me at night, wiped away my tears, and baked me cookies on bad days. You are an amazing person , mommy!
#10 Mom – your guidance means more to me than anyone else on this earth. I want nothing but the absolute best from life because of what you have instilled in me as a child. Thank you for never giving up on me, and thank you for everything you did to make me the strong woman I am today.
#11 You are my best friend, confidant, support system, cheerleader, inspiration – truly my second half. You are the reason that I am where I am in life right now – every good thing that has come into my life can be attributed to your influence in some way.
#12 I know that if it wasn’t for you acting as a surrogate mom when mine couldn’t be there, I would have experienced so much pain growing up. Thank you so much for being there when nobody else was able to be during those difficult years in my childhood.
#13 Thank you for being in my life even though we couldn’t spend as much time together when I was younger because of our schedules, but now that I am older things are different. Thank you mom!
#14 You have always been there for me through good times and bad. You were so understanding when all I did was cry, which makes me feel guilty yet happy at the same time. Thank you for everything you have done mom!

We hope this is not the end of how much we depend on your help but the beginning of something new between us (children).
#81 You might not know why or how, but thank you for everything. I don’t think there are enough thanks in the world to give back half of what I owe you.
