Every mom wants to feel loved and appreciated every day, especially on her birthday. Looking for the perfect words to express your appreciation? Here are some thoughtful “Happy birthday, mom!” quotes you can send to or share with her.

Birthday Poems for your Mom
- Every team has its most valuable player (MVP)
In mine, it’s you
Not because you own billions
Neither is it because you possess bullions
But because you give everything your best shot
Thanks will never be enough to requite your sacrifices
Happy birthday to the real MVP
- As a vine sustains and nourishes its branches
So do you provide and care for your own
You make my sorrows and pain your own
So that I don’t have to bear any
And you allay my worries and fears
So that I can thrive unencumbered
You deserve all the hugs and kisses a child can give a mother
Happy birthday to the best mother in the world
- A sweet mother like you is as precious to me as the earth is to mankind
You make my world better
And give me a hundred billion reasons to smile
Never will life produce your kind
Because angels like you come once in an eternity
I’m tremendously blessed to call an amazing and sweet woman like you my mother
