What to write in a Mother's Day Card


You have the card for the mother(s) in your life....
Now, what to write inside?

I know it takes something to write that special message, but, as a mom, I can tell you that a few words of love and appreciation go SUCH a really long way. So set aside time, to put pen to paper, and fill out that card.

What to write in mothers day card

For me, a quiet afternoon alone, or breakfast in bed, or flowers are wonderful…yet often, the words on a card, saying that I am loved and doing a great job, are what most touch my heart.

Sometimes getting started can be tricky, so I asked my friend Gina, author of the book I Want to Thank You to help. 

After Gina's journey of writing one thank you note per day for a year, she knows a thing or two about thank you card writing.

Below are some Mother’s Day starters she suggested:
