Happy Mothers Day Messages for Friends that will Brighten Their Day

Last updated: December 19, 2022

Writing Happy Mother’s Day messages for friends is such a lovely way to show your support for one of the most important parts of their lives. Being a mom is both difficult and rewarding. It requires kindness, patience, and often a sense of humor, while packing lunches, caring for scrapes and bruises, and offering homework help. Moms deserve appreciation for all the work and love that they give to their families every day.

Each year, we celebrate Mother’s Day on the second Sunday in May. Many mothers will receive messages and wishes from their immediate family. Sending a Happy Mother’s Day message to a friend can be an extra-thoughtful gesture that brightens their day. But what should you write in a Mother’s Day card or message to a friend?

Mother’s Day is an opportunity for messages of support and encouragement. These Happy Mother’s Day wishes for friends range from funny messages that will make your friend laugh, to more sentimental and heartfelt messages. We’ve also included a few Happy Mother’s Day quotes to learn from the wisdom of others.

You’re the only one who knows exactly what’s special about your friendship with the recipient, so feel free to adjust the wording to fit your unique relationship. Each of these messages would work well in a Happy Mother’s Day text message. Or, use them in a social media post to congratulate all your friends who are moms.
