While gifts of flowers, chocolate and jewelry make enjoyable Mother's Day gifts, think about writing an inspirational message to your mother that is meaningful and will be remembered. No matter what kind of relationship you have with your mom, an inspirational message will lift her spirits on her special day.
Messages From Young Kids
Young kids may just be learning about what Mother's Day is, but they will understand the concept. Dads, older siblings or school teachers can help young kids craft inspirational messages to their moms that are simple and genuine. When working with young children, help them think of special things their mothers do the best, whether it is reading to them, helping them with homework or never missing a class art show. As ideas are identified, come up with inspirational messages such as "No matter how busy you are, you always make me the best lunches."
Messages From Older Kids
As children grow older and start to have kids of their own, most learn to appreciate all the hard work their moms did when they were young. Older children who send inspirational messages to their moms on Mother's Day should focus on the things they learned from their mothers. One inspirational message could be "Thank you for always encouraging me to do my best. Because of you, I am a better parent."
Messages From Significant Other
Significant others give Mother's Day gifts and cards to the women in their lives. Inspirational messages sent by a partner should express words of appreciation and encouragement. Some examples include "All that you do is for the love of our children. Your tired nights and busy days are proof you are the world's greatest mother" or "Even when you can't possibly do any more, you manage to."
Messages From Parents
Parents give their daughters Mother's Day cards once daughters become mothers of their own. Parents can give their daughters inspirational messages to let them know how great a parenting job they are doing. New mothers are happy to hear they are doing well as moms, especially when it comes from their own parents. Think of inspirational messages that would touch your daughter's heart, such as "Your hard work and love are the roots of your family."
