Michelle Obama’s Mother’s Day 2019 Instagram About Sasha & Malia Is So Inspiring
Mother’s Day is coming up, and the emotional posts are pouring out. First lady Michelle Obama is one of many opening up ahead of the holiday, sharing a sweet reflection on her parenting journey that will absolutely, most definitely have you in your feelings. Heck, Michelle Obama’s Mother’s Day 2019 Instagram about Sasha and Malia might even inspire you.
The world has watched Obama and her daughters laugh together, grow together, share advice with each other and more for years, but nothing really captures their bond like this. Celebrating Mother’s Day two days early via Instagram on Friday, May 10, Obama showed a lot of love for her daughters, reflecting on some precious moments they’ve spent together. But she also spread her gratitude to her mother, who she said helped her develop key parenting skills, such as “the freedom to explore and develop into [her] 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,” Obama wrote. She went on to say that she made it a priority to pass on those lessons to her daughters, with whom she’s traveled “across the country and around the world.” The post said:
I’ve been so fortunate to be able to travel with Sasha and Malia all across the country and around the world—experiences my mother never would have dreamed of back when I was their age. 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.
Aw! Closing the post is warm photo of Obama, Sasha, and Malia on vacation in Venice, Italy.
