20+ Ways to Say Happy Thanksgiving, Mom!

For many of us, it’s impossible to think about Thanksgiving without also thinking of Mom. In many households, Mom is the one who plans the gathering, cooks most of the food, and insists on everyone telling what they’re thankful for before digging into the turkey and mashed potatoes. In other words, she’s a person to truly be thankful for on this special occasion.

Sure, we already have Mother’s Day to show Mom some gratitude for everything she does. Then there’s her birthday, which is a good time to show her some appreciation for who she is. But if you’re counting your blessings – as we should all do on Thanksgiving – you can’t leave out one of the most important figures in your life.

One obvious way to let your mother know you’re thinking of her is to send a unique Thanksgiving greeting. To help you find the right words, we’ve put together the following list of Turkey Day wishes for Mom. Whether your mother is a thousand miles away or sitting at the table with you, she’ll be grateful for the love you show with one of these thoughtful messages.
