Barack Obama said in a video, how he "could not be a luckier man to be married to " Michelle and that she is "the best mother that his girls have ever had".
Amidst several ardent posts that surfaced this Mother's Day, the former U.S. President Barrack Obama stole our hearts with a lovely tribute he specially curated for his wife Michelle. After reading this Instagram post you'll definitely know how highly he thinks of his better half. He referred to her as the "perfect role model" along with a picture of her accompanied by their two daughters Sasha and Malia, with the Great Wall of China in the background.
This picture of the former First Lady hugging her two daughters contained a little message right under it. He wrote: Happy Mother's Day to the most caring, brilliant, funny, and grounded woman I know—a perfect role model not just for our daughters, but so many others. Love you, @MichelleObama. Obama then went ahead and uploaded a video titled: I just surprised @MichelleObama with this video message at the final event of her book tour. Happy Mother's Day to the love of my life.
This surprise beautiful message began with him expressing how lucky he is for having a loving wife like her. He said, "I just wanted to make sure on Mother's Day That you knew how much I loved you. I could not be a luckier man to be married to you." He then went on to credit Michelle for being the best mother that his girls have ever had. "Our girls could not have a better mom and they couldn't have asked for a better example every single day," said Obama.
Furthermore he took a trip down memory lane and explained how nervous he was when he asked her to marry him, "And, you know, when I decided to ask you to marry me I wasn't sure you'd say yes, but I also didn't know where we'd be going in our lives, I just knew I wanted to go there with you." Obama conveyed how proud he was for the achievements his wife had bagged, "And now I've just had a chance to see how extraordinary your journey has been, as a mom, and as a professional, as a first lady, you've written this extraordinary book, you're filling up these arenas, but most importantly, you have shown yourself through your honesty and fearlessness and insight to be a great advocate for people who need advocacy, help inspire people to find their own voices." The video ended with him saying, "So, I'm pretty proud of you, girl."
While the emotions he shared about her through this Instagram was heart-warming, it's also true that Michelle is indeed worthy of every bit of appreciation her spouse showered on her. She's not just a role model for her family but is the perfect source of inspiration for the upcoming youths. The author of Becoming recently surprised a group of students who studied her memoir. On May 11, she spoke to 18 students of Spelman College, Atlanta and encouraged them to have faith in themselves, reported the Atlanta-Journal Constitution.
Michelle began the conversation by telling these students how much the eight years of her life in the White House has helped her realize her inclinations when compared to the educational qualifications of other leaders of the world. Right before leaving she shared a mantra saying, "The biggest challenge to overcome now is believing in yourself." She too uploaded a couple of pictures with her daughters and mother appreciating their roles in her life.
Two days ago she uploaded a picture of her girls and wrote: With #MothersDayjust a couple days away, I find myself thinking a lot about the way my mother raised me. And even though our family was crammed into a tiny apartment, one of the greatest gifts she gave me was the freedom to explore and develop into my own person. For instance, even though we didn’t have much money, she and my dad cobbled enough money together to send me on a high-school trip to Paris, which opened up the world to me in so many ways.
She then added how fortunate she was to travel with them, something that her mother couldn't have imagined when Michelle was of their age. She ended the post writing: But though the settings may be different, the message is the same, and it’s one I hope mothers everywhere pass on to their daughters—in seeking out new perspectives and reaching outside of our comfort zones, we can discover more about ourselves.
For her final post yesterday she appreciated her mother as much as she could. She wrote: Growing up, every time I’d come home from school with a story to share, my mother was there with a snack and a listening ear to hear about what was on my mind. When I came home with a tale about my disastrous second-grade classroom, she marched into the school to figure out what was going on. 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. She’s always listened more than she lectured; observed more than she demonstrated. In doing so, she allowed me to think for myself and develop my own voice. From an early age, she saw that I had a flame inside me, and she never tempered it. She made sure that I could keep it lit. 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. #HappyMothersDay, Mom. Love you. ❤️
