She's your mum by luck, your friend by choice. She's your hero, your mentor (not to mention your occasional personal chef and taxi driver!) but, perhaps most importantly of all, she's the one that's always got your back. When someone means so much, it can be hard to find the right words to tell them so let us help with our bumper list of Mother's Day messages and quotes.
MOTHER'S DAY MESSAGES FOR ALL MOTHERS
Every mum is different but each is precious to us in our own way. Send her a classic declaration of love with one of these beautiful heartfelt messages.
To the best mum in the world, happy Mother's Day! Hope you have the happiest of days
I hope I can see you soon and give you a big hug, but for now these flowers will have to do!
Happy Mother's Day Mum! You mean so much to me. I hope your day is as special as you are.
Mum I love you more than words can say. You are my best friend and I'd be lost without you. Thank you for making me the person I am today.
Mum, thank you so much for everything you do for all of us. The children love you and we are so grateful for your support.
MOTHER'S DAY MESSAGES FROM DAUGHTERS
As a daughter, mum is often the first person who inspires and guides you on your way into womanhood. Make sure to let her know how wonderful she is at dealing with boy trouble, being a safe place when things go wrong and putting up with the teenage tantrums!

MOTHER'S DAY MESSAGES FROM SONS
Sometimes as a son, it may be hard to tell your mum how much you love her and how wonderful she is. Although she may not always understand the ways of men, you know she'll always be there for you. So, here's a few messages to help you express what you sometimes struggle to say out loud.
Mum, you are my biggest inspiration and influence. Thank you for everything you have done to support me and for making me the man I am now.
