Heartfelt Mother’s Day Quotes


Mother’s Day is upon us, it is right around the corner.  In honor of Mother’s Day, I like to mail cards to loved ones to show much they are appreciated.  Now you must be thinking, being the blogger I am, I am a natural wordsmith.  No way, especially when it comes to witty little notes or sayings.  This is why I am always on the look out for a funny quotes or saying.  So, I decided to compile a list of “Happy Mother’s Day quotes” for those (like myself) who also struggle with coming up what to say to our loved one!

For more fun on this special day, you can also check out these posts: International Women’s Day quotes, National Son’s Day quotes, Mother’s Day memes, Letter To My Daughter, Christmas Quotes.
