Best Mother’s Day Quotes
The best mother’s day quote is the one that you come up with yourself and has special meaning. For example, my daughters and I often joke with one another. Anytime there is a lifetime movie on with a crazy mom, a news report about a mean one, or some movie like Mommie Dearest comes on, I tell my kids, “See. I’m not so bad.” They will say, “Eh, you’re okay, I guess.”
This year, my daughter came home with an early gift for me. A beautiful bouquet of purple flowers and a card. Inside it talks about how great I am but then she wrote, “You’re okay sometimes, I guess.” Now, some moms wouldn’t like that, but I thought it was pretty funny.
The key is knowing your mom well enough and adding in those special memories and moments only the two of you share. Below are some well-known quotes you can borrow in a pinch. Just make sure that you credit the quote to the person who said it. You sure don’t want mom to read it elsewhere and realize you lifted it. ha ha!
God could not be everywhere, and therefore he made mothers. — JEWISH PROVERB
All that I am, or hope to be, I owe to my angel mother. – Abraham Lincoln

It Truly Is the Thought That Counts
Don’t stress out if you can’t buy Mom an expensive gift. It really is the thought that counts. We want to know we’re loved and that our hard work, late nights worrying, babying you when you’re sick, and the other little things we do are noticed and appreciated. It’s one day a year you have the opportunity to tell mom how much you care. A beautiful quote is just one way to do it.
