The mother-son dance at the reception is the mother of the groom’s big moment, and the song you choose can say “thank you” for everything she’s done.

That said, it can be really hard to pick a song. There seem to be a lot less songs about mothers than fathers (we don’t know why), making it difficult to find one that says exactly what you want it to say.
