My mother is my rock. She is my best friend and my mother all wrapped up into one amazing person that I wouldn't be able to survive without. Facebook is about to become flooded with Mother's Day status updates, so when you're tagging your mother, you'll need one of these Mother's Day quotes to share on Facebook for all the feels. Plus, this will make her feel special even if you can’t be with your mom for Mother’s Day this year.

The relationship you have with your mother is one that is truly unique and timeless. For some, there's no other relationship that will ever compare, and there is no one in the world whose hug and words of wisdom will comfort quite like a mother's. Truly some mothers should be celebrated every single day of the year, but since there is a dedicated day set aside for it, you can make a plan for how you’ll honor her.

This Mother's Day, don't just say "thanks for everything" and "I love you." Take it up a notch and employ the words of many greats to truly express just how much your mother means to you. After all, she spent hours raising you to be a functioning member of society. Without her, you probably wouldn't have experienced the cheerleader-only mothers know how to be on the sidelines of your life. She deserves some serious love for all that, doesn't she? Here are 29 Mother’s Day quotes to share.
