It’s Mothering Sunday and people across the UK have been sending messages to mums everywhere.
These messages range from thankful, jovial to mournful – but they’ll all catch you right in the feels. Here’s some of the best.
Chester Zoo and the National Trust know animals are always the best way to pluck on the heartstrings…

Meanwhile, there were more serious messages for those servicemen who won’t be seeing their mothers today – and thanks to those mothers who have served their country.

Before you go thinking there’s no mum-love to be found in football, some have tried to remind us otherwise.
Throwback to when the Ajax players walked onto the pitch with their mums on #MothersDay.

Alright mate, you’re making the rest of us look bad…
Meanwhile Richard here was certainly confused.
Don't forget to put your Mums forward an hour this morning.

Finally, one message we aren’t quite sure too many mums would understand – but think they mean well all the same.
Shout out all the mums.
You man are heroes cuz.
