With Mother's Day right around the corner, you want to get everything ready to shower your mom with all the love. She is your BFF, after all, and deserves the entire world. If you live long-distance, start the day by drafting some texts to send your mom on Mother’s Day, so she wakes up to some seriously sweet words. Just because you can't physically be there, that doesn't mean you can't still make her day extra special. You just have to think outside the box when it comes to surprises.
Maybe you planned to send her a pretty box of cupcakes or a bouquet of her favorite flowers, but you never know with delivery windows if your gift will arrive on time. A text in the morning — followed up with a FaceTime or phone call — is the perfect way to guarantee your mom will feel all the love without delay. But alas, coming up with a well-written text can be pretty difficult.
If left to your own devices, you’d probably write a five-paragraph essay on why your mom is the best mama bear in the world. She’d love every single minute of it, and you can totally go that route. But, if you want to send her something short and sweet, try any of these cute Mother’s Day texts. There are texts that are so funny that they’ll make your mom smile, and some that are as sweet as chocolate-covered strawberries. You could even use some of these as captions for your Insta post dedicated to her later on. Either way, she’ll appreciate every bit of it, just like you appreciate the heck out of her.
