Michelle Obama's Mother's Day Salute to Military Moms and Families
I'll Always Love My Mama
"There is no way I would be standing up straight on my feet if it weren’t for my mom, who is always there to look after our girls, to love them and to be mad at me when I’m disciplining them, which I still don’t get," Obama said in a tribute to her mother, Marian Robinson. "But especially, she’s been that shoulder for me to lean on. I can always go up to her room and cry, complain, argue, and she just says, go on back down there and do what you’re supposed to do. So if my mom reflects the love and support that the moms here have given to their families, then we’re in good space here. So, Mom, I love you."
