Ways to Say Happy Mother's Day

On Mother's Day, you just have to send a card. But sometimes, standing in the card aisle can be overwhelming. This year I lucked out! I found exactly what I wanted to say, and in a short amount of time.

Here are the cards I picked up for my 92-year-old grandma, my mom and my mother-in-law at Target. The wording is perfect.

Grandma, how do I thank you for all the ways you make me feel special and loved?
How do I thank you for the wisdom you've shared and the memories that live forever in my heart?
By letting you know, especially today, how much I love you.

From Your Daughter on Mother's Day...
You always have my back, in big ways and small.
You're there when I'm feeling stressed, or when I need a good laugh with a friend.
And, over and over, in every way it can be said, you always let me know how much you believe in me.
I don't say it nearly enough, but I'm grateful for all you do.

With Love and Thanks from Your Son and Daughter-in-law...
For all your love and caring, for your kindness and advice,
For all the help you've given without ever thinking twice...
For being such a special mother - and a good friend, too -
This wish is filled with heartfelt thanks and love from us to you.

The card with the cat is for my grandma from my kids. It was cute, simple and "purr-fect", too!

I'd love to hear about your mom and the touching cards you found this year.
