Barack Obama’s two-term presidency was a historic time in American history. Yet as much as the country loved and respected the former president, his wife managed to steal the spotlight quite often.
It’s not a surprise that when Michelle Obama tweeted a very special birthday message for her mother on July 29, Twitter erupted.
“Happy Birthday Mom! Your unconditional love has made me who I am today. You are my Rock. My [heart]. I will always be your Miche, I love you,” the former first lady shared.
She had also added an old photo of her mother, Marian Shields Robinson, and herself that’ll make you go “aww.” The shy baby Michelle and her mama have a striking resemblance to each other, and the internet fell absolutely in love with it.

The tweet received hundreds of thousands of likes as well as thousands of re-tweets and comments.
Per usual, Twitter users responded with their own heart-felt messages.
The “I miss you” tweets came flooding in.
Most had to do a double take on the photo.
And are you positive you won’t run in 2020 Michelle?
I'm voting for you in 2020.

The former first lady has continued her work to empower the nation’s future generations.
She is staying true to her promise to keep working on the causes she values.
Obama joined forces with Spotify at the Odds Summit at Washington, D.C.’s Dunbar High School just this past week. This was to help empower college-bound students to purse their goals, particularly in the tech field.
Obama also just recently addressed the country on a serious note about people’s inability to look past her race. She believes that people will not acknowledge her accomplishment because of the color of her skin.
Despite all that she’s done and is doing for this country.
Although she has faced much racism and backlash, Obama will continue to inspire many across the country with her caring nature, empowering beliefs, and accomplishments.
This adorable birthday tweet is just one of the many things to love about this truly remarkable former first lady.
