Inspiring Mother’s Day Messages

Words of inspiration can become great wishes for a person that has probably inspired us.

  • Dear Mother, I pray for you to have a healthy life so that you can not only live long enough to see me through as much of my life as possible, but so you can live happily enough to get the most out of your time. You have always made sure I was taken care of, nursed me through illnesses and stood by me on bad and good times. I love you and I will always care for you.
  • I hope that I have made you proud of me, proud of my accomplishments and proud of the person I have become. You are responsible for the best parts of me and I pray I’ve done you justice through my character and behavior.
  • Mother, I hope you will let me join you in those things that you put off in order to devote so much of your life to raising me. I’ve been your child and you’ve been my confidante, my supporter, and my friend. Please let me now be your support in the same way you have been my support throughout my whole life.
Happy Mother's Day message.
Love you, Mom!
You are loved, mother! Happy Mother's Day.
You are loved, mother! Happy Mother’s Day.
  • I hope you know how important you are in the world, not just as a mother, but as a woman who has always tried to do her best to be kind, generous, and loving. At the end of the day you are more than just a mother, although being a mother is certainly enough to garner respect and admiration. You are a human being, a strong woman, and one that I am lucky to know and proud to love and be loved by in return.
  • Mother, I wish you fun and prosperity! You prepared me so well for life, teaching me and raising me in a way that helped to ensure my success. You taught me the value of hard work and how to have important business taken care of before stopping to relax. I want you to take a break now and relax and let me show you how much I love you while you enjoy peace, calm and tranquility.
  • For as long as I can remember, you’ve made my dreams your priority. I now wish for all of your dreams to come true. Putting aside your own aspirations and goals in order to tend to mine, to make me into an achiever, a doer. You’ve done everything in your power to give me the tools and urge to succeed. You have taught me what it is to exist in this life, you’ve inspired me when I wanted to give up and held me when I needed a rest. It is your turn now to go after your goals, whatever they may be. I hope I can be half as much of a help to you in achieving your dreams as you have been to me.
  • Last but not least I wish for you to feel the wonderful sense of being loved that you have made me feel throughout my entire existence. There has never been a moment in my life, no matter how dark, when I couldn’t think of you and feel the love you have for me buoying me up and carrying me through. Your love has carried me through so much, it’s lit my way through dark times and lifted me over hard times. Your confidence in me has inspired my own confidence in myself, and my desire to not let you down has transformed into pride of spirit and the ability to move myself on, no matter how difficult things might seem.
  • So thank you, Mother, for all you have done and continue to do for me. I am who I am because of you, and I am so glad to have had you both as my Mother and my friend.
  • From dress up to makeup your hand has guided my image, and now when I look in the mirror I am happy to see what others have said so often. That I am the spitting image of you. Warm wishes for a Happy Mother’s Day!
  • The happiness I feel each day in my heart has been there from the very start. As I watch you care for our children and home, your exquisite loveliness has only grown. So, in the spirit of Mother’s Day, it makes me truly happy to put my love on display.
  • My heart feels a depth of gratitude that only a hug can display. I wish that I could wrap my arms around you and make life’s irks go away. But, instead, I will say a happy prayer that we are here together to celebrate this Mother’s Day.
To the best mom in the whole wide world! Happy Mother's day!

My warmest wishes for a joyous day.

  • Since I’ve become a mom, I’ve learned a few things that I didn’t understand before. Like how difficult it is to juggle marriage, children, and work. You made it look so easy, but now I know that it wasn’t. I’m grateful for the way you raised me and now I have to give you flowers and big kisses filled with warm wishes for a great Mother’s day.
  • It was you who fixed that hole in my pants. It was you who paid for me to learn how to dance. It was your happy face that I longed to see, how proud you were of me. I wish you could see my face now, how happy it is, just knowing that by the time you read this I’ll be there by your side. I love you mom!
  • I vowed to love you in sickness and in health. I vowed to provide for you and our family. But, it has been you who provided the happiness needed to make our house a home.

Mother’s day is that day through the year that we must all take a moment and celebrate all of the wonderful things our mothers do for us, from the cradle to the grave, things that often go unnoticed. Our moms are the ones who care for us and nurture us when we’re too small to nurture ourselves. Our moms worry over us when we’re too young and immature to worry for our safety, and they constantly console us through all of those little or big trials of life.
