Sweet Mother’s Day Quotes

March 10, 2023

Mother’s Day is one of those wonderful days to celebrate your mum. It can often be a difficult day for some if your mum is no longer around, but it can also take on a whole new meaning when you become a mum yourself. Mothers are special. There is no doubt about it.

If you want to celebrate a mum who is watching over you from above, a best friend, a stepmother, a grandmother, or a special lady who has been like a mum to you, here are some of the sweet Mother’s Day quotes you can share or use as a reminder for how special those people are.

Mother’s Day quotes you can share as a reminder of how special those people are

“A mother’s arms are more comforting than anyone else’s” Princess Diana

There is no denying it when you need comfort one of the people you think about the most is your own mother. It was that comfort and a child when you were hurt or upset; even as an adult, there is something comforting about a mother’s arms. Whether you are upset or just want some reassurance. When you become a mum, you see the power of your cuddles and arms around your little ones, and it is magical. 

“Mothers hold their children’s hands for a short while, but their hearts forever” Unknown 

How true is this? In the mix of things as a mother, you can often feel those days with young kids are never-ending, but they grow up too fast and before you know it, are independent and want to do things themselves. That being said, you are still there for them. 

“There is no way to be a perfect mother and a million ways to be a good one.” Jill Churchill

These days social media doesn’t help with the narrative of what perfect is. But many of us will look back on our childhoods and know our mums did their best. This is such a wonderful quote to share with other mums and to remind yourself of. There is no perfect mum, but so many ways you can be a good mum, and that at the end of the day, is enough.

“God could not be everywhere, and therefore he made mothers.” Rudyard Kipling

This is a lovely quote to remember, especially if faith is important to you. Mothers can be seen as your guide, your angel, the person who knows you the best, and so this quote is very relevant because if you do turn to faith, then your mum can often be the person you ask for advice from as well. 

“It’s not easy being a mother. If it were, fathers would do it.” The Golden Girls

Let’s be honest for a moment. Fathers step up and are just as important as a mother’s role. But, being a mother often means you have so much more on your plate and are the one your children turn to for comfort as well as having to do all of those practical things. So this might be a little tongue-in-cheek and funny quote to share, but it isn’t meant to be malicious, more just to highlight that as mothers we do a lot. 

“Acceptance, tolerance, bravery, compassion. These are the things my mom taught me.” Lady Gaga

We learn so much from our mothers. Not just practical things but how to be strong, accept things, and have tolerance, confidence, bravery, and compassion. This quote from Lady Gaga highlights exactly what we all can take away from our relationships with our mothers.

“Everything I am, you helped me to be.” Unknown 

This is a lovely quote to share because we are a product of our parents, and the people we turn out to be, they helped us to become. That can be done in so many ways. From being shown things, and being told things, to environments and home life. You are the person you are because of your mum. 

“Sooner or later we all quote our mothers.” Bern Williams 

Ever found yourself saying something to your kids and remembering your own mum saying it to you? The truth is we all end up quoting our mothers at some point in our lives and this quote is just a funny reminder of that. 

“It’s a funny thing about mothers and fathers. Even when their own child is the most disgusting little blister you could ever imagine, they still think that he or she is wonderful.” Roald Dahl

And finally, this was just something funny that I think all mothers can relate to. No matter who your child is, you will always think they are wonderful.
