When is Mother's Day?

We all know that Mother's Day is celebrated all around the world, regardless of race or religion.

This 10th May 2015, is Mother's Day, a day where every mom's effort, love, care or sacrifices are acknowledged by their kids, grown up kids and spouse.

Mother's day is celebrated on the 2nd Sunday of MAY every year without fail.

Tips to use Mother's Day Quotes

How do you declare your love for your mom?

  • You can write your own poems or quotes if you are talented with words. By far, most people shower their mom with Mother's Day quotes which are readily found in tons of websites.
  • You can send text messages to your mother.
  • Write Mother's Day quotes in handmade cards or store bought cards
  • Give flowers, gift baskets or handmade gifts and include a small note with simple Mother's Day quotes.

Every mom is yearning for this day, wondering which of her child remembers her on this special day. As a mother of two myself, I waited patiently every Mother's Day for my kids to show their love in either words or handmade gifts.

In the same way, I also call my mom every year, chat with her and wish her a "HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY", say a short quote before I end the conversation. She was happy that I remembered her past sacrifices for our family, I thanked her for everything she had given to us. She was touched.

Buy Heart Punch for Handmade cards

I bought this heart punch which became very useful for my handmade cards for any occasion. Recently, I punch out some pink hearts for my Mother's Day card which I had made for my mom. I love the quality punch hole, doesn't tear off the color paper and the size were perfect for crafts. The spring is durable and stacks up the pretty hearts.

Would definitely buy more shapes for my crafts

She works from morning until dawn
She spreads her love
And keeps you warm
But only once a year we say
Mother we wish you "Happy Mothers Day"

Mother Teresa Quotes

Despite giving your best to the world, you may be kicked in the teeth. Give the best you have anyway.


The person who gives with a smile is the best giver because God loves a cheerful giver.


It's law of nature that the good you do, will be forgotten tomorrow. But the good work must be carried on.


The person who gives with a smile is the best giver because God loves a cheerful giver.


It is not the size of our actions but the amount of love and care that is put into them that matters.

Nothing could beat a Mother Teresa's quotes. I got this poster with her quotes and hung it on the wall, just behind my laptop.

These motivation quotes gave me the strength to move on when I am down and out of ideas of what to write. Life goes on as we reached good times and bad times.

We cannot give up easily. Life is too precious for us to waste. True, we should learn to overcome problems as we encounter, not escape and hide.

Mother Teresa is great!

      In reading this hub, I think of my dear, departed Mother. She would have loved all of these quotes. I was fortunate to have her. She sacrificed everything for her children. She died a saint...and I'm not kidding. I look forward to my own Mother's Day next Sunday. My son never forgets. He's the best decision I ever made. Thank you for writing this lovely piece about the responsibility and charm of motherhood. It really is the most important job we'll ever have.
