In honor of Mother’s Day this year, people around the world celebrated their moms with flowers, cards, gifts and touching messages on social media. Even famous personlaities were not left out.
Like mother like daughter
Former US First Lady Michelle Obama revealed that the way she raises her two daughters, Malia and Sasha, is highly influenced by how she was brought up by her own mother, Marian Robinson.
Marian who didn’t receive a high school education was married to former boxer and soldier Fraser C. Robinson III.
Despite raising Michelle and son, Craig, as a stay-at-home-mom, she was obsessed with her children receiving the best education. Her daughter ended up in the White House, while Craig has a successful career as a college basketball coach.
On how Michelle’s mother influenced her relationship with her own children, the former First Lady said the mother she is today is the direct result of Marian.
The Becoming author also admitted that she copies her mother in the bond she has with Malia and Sasha.
Mother’s Day tribute
The former US first lady celebrating Mother’s Day this year paid a heartfelt tribute to her mom, Marian.
On Sunday, Michelle shared an adorable photo of herself posing alongside her mom and two daughters to celebrate the special day. The four of them looked beautiful, dressed in white with their lovely smiles while posing for the photograph.
In a long and emotional tribute to her mom, the former first lady thanked her mother saying:
Mom, thank you for kindling that fire within me, and for your example as a mother and a grandmother to our girls. We would never be who we are today without you.
And as I grew older, including up through my years as First Lady, she was always there for me as a guiding light through whatever fog was clouding my path.
