Michelle Obama wants everyone to know how she became who she is.

For Mother’s Day, the former First Lady wrote a heart-felt message about her mom.

Michelle begins her post by taking us on a trip down memory lane. She spoke on how when she was a little girl, she would always have stories to tell her mom, and her mom would be right there with her ear listening.

Michelle realized her mom would always have her back no matter what when she had a situation in second grade. Her mom went up o the school to see what was going on, and from there, Michelle said her mom was always there for her like a guiding light.

She said her mom “listened more than lectured.” This could be because from an early age, Michelle’s mom saw that her daughter was unique and special, and probably more mature than the other kids.

Michelle said her mom saw her “flame” inside her at an early age. She pays homage to her mother for helping her tame her flame throughout the years. She said she wouldn’t be who she is today without her mom!
