Former US President Barack Obama took to social media to thank spouse Michelle for being an “incredible mom”.
Obama wrote a heartfelt notice on Instagram on the event of Mother’s Day. “On this Mother’s Day, I want to thank Michelle for being such an incredible mom to our girls.”
Not simply organic mothers, the ex-POTUS urged folks to thank all ladies “who love you in that special way that mothers do: biological moms, adoptive moms, and foster moms; single moms, grandmoms and godmothers; aunts and mentors.”
He added, “…take a moment, like I will, to remember the moms who raised and sustained us, and who we miss every day — no matter how long it’s been.”
Obama stated that these folks deserved to be celebrated daily. “All of these amazing people deserve our gratitude, today and every day.”
Meanwhile, the previous FLOTUS expressed gratitude to her mom with a heartwarming submit on Instagram. Sharing an image of her mom, she wrote, “…every time I see it, I can’t help but think of all the adventures we’ve had over the years. From the days I spent as a kid around the pool at the cabin we used to rent out in Michigan, to the times in Chicago she’d come over before sunrise to watch the kids so I could work out, to every minute she spent with us in the White House, my mom has always been my rock. ”
“I know that this can be a tough day for so many who aren’t as lucky. So this Mother’s Day, I hope you take a moment to celebrate all the moms and mom-like figures in your life — the aunties and grandmothers, the friends and mentors — who have helped you find your way in the world,” she additional wrote.
