Mothers hold their children’s hands for a while, but their hearts forever

Valentine’s Day is a day of love and appreciation and letting others know how you truly feel about them. This is typically a holiday we often think of as being reserved for people in a romantic relationship, but I think it’s also a celebration of love for anybody who has someone special in their life.

Family relationships are bonds formed by blood and marriage and prove to be some of the deepest types of love out there. So now is the perfect time to express your love for your kids, too!

When I was growing up and living at home still, my dad would make Valentine’s Day breakfast for me, my sister, and my mom. He would make heart-shaped pancakes decorated with heart-shaped candies for the holiday, and he would give each of us a loving Valentine’s day card with sweet messages of love inside.

Many of us find it hard to find the right words to say, other than the typical, "Happy Valentine's Day, Daughter!"

We've collected a few examples of parent-daughter love with these sweet Valentine's Day quotes for daughters. You know, just in case you need some inspiration to tell your daughter just exactly how much you love her.
