Mother's Day: Personal Messages For Mom

Mother's Day is coming!
And you are armed and ready with either a blank card, or one from scratch (In the 5 Easy Steps Handmade tutorial!)
Now all you need is that message filled with loving words for your mother, wife, mother-in-law, or any other motherly figure in your life.
Let's start brainstorming!
What type of mother you have you have? Is she the funny mom, who loves to laugh? Does she thrive on humor and practical jokes?

Or do you have a sentimental mother who holds loving words close to her heart? You know, the mom who watches Lifetime movie marathons on Mother's Day, with a gallon of ice cream, and three boxes of tissues?
How about this- your mother the strongest person you know? Perhaps she works three jobs, never takes a day off, and is just a full out workaholic?
If she is a mixture of all three- don't worry- I've got you covered! You can mix and match some of these ideas for messages- dedicated to my mother- happy Mother's Day Ma!

Let's cover all the bases here!
