Motherhood is by far the most difficult profession out there, but it is also the most admirable and rewarding.

She has a tendency to prioritise the needs of those she cares about and loves over her own, and she has sacrificed her own dreams so that we can realise ours. Not only that, but she has helped shape us into the best versions of ourselves.

She is truly Godsent, an epitome of gentleness and sternness, bravery, strength, patience, and selflessness, and whether she is our mother by blood or simply by chance, life without her will feel incomplete.

The gift of a mother to us is her entire life and being. So, this Mother's Day, let's tell her she's the best gift we could ask for and remind her, "Hey Mum, you're wonderful!"

You can never go wrong with a Mother's Day card loaded with your most heartfelt wishes, especially when it's just around the corner. In any case, these ideas will help you craft the perfect Mother's Day card message, whether you're sending it to a mother, grandmother, or other mother figure in your life.
