Mother’s Day is all about celebrating the women who raised and shaped us as people. Sometimes, there aren't enough words to describe her, but she is almost always: smart, funny, loyal, loving, caring, and everything else.
Once you’ve picked the right card for your mom or mom figure in your life, it's time to come up with the right words to explain just how much she means to you. It’s important to thank HER — mothers, grandmothers, godmothers, stepmothers, mothers-in-law, foster moms, aunts, wives, sisters, and women who love with a mother’s heart — for all the love and work she put in through the years. This day is meant for us to remind them of our appreciation and love with the best card and message.
Whether you're writing a message to your own mother or someone else altogether, consider this guide on what to write in a card the ultimate starting point. Don’t forget to pull from personal experiences, memories, and feelings to craft the most unique message.
