Even if you are miles away from your dear mother, reach out to her with a thoughtful message. If you have something more elaborate in mind, here are some ideas. Why Use Mother's Day Quotes Usually, it is not too difficult to pick a gift for mothers. Mothers are not fussy creatures. You'd hardly meet a mother who would tell her son, "Honey, I'd really like the exquisite silver cutlery I saw at Macy's." On the contrary, she would mostly say something like, "Oh, sweetie, don't bother with these expensive gifts. All I want is to spend time with you." So here's the hint: Your mother needs you. Your mother, though she deserves a lot more, needs just a little bit of your time. If you want to be thoughtful, scribble her a few Mother's Day quotes to make her feel special. Share some happy moments with her, reading these wonderful quotes about mothers. Talk about your beautiful childhood memories, and watch her eyes go misty with those memories. That's how you can make your mother the happiest woman in the world.
