It’s not Mother’s Day but anyway
First Lady Michelle Obama graces the cover of Essence Magazine’s May 2009 issue posing with her mom, Marian Robinson, and talking about many different things including family, raising kids being First Lady.
I loved Michelle’s words about her mom who currently lives with her daughter in the White House to help take care of the Obamas’ children, Malia and Sasha. Check them out here:
My mom is an incredibly intelligent and insightful person about life in general. From the time we could talk, she talked to us endlessly about any and everything with a level of openness and fearlessness that made us believe that we were bright enough to engage with an adult, that we were worthy enough to ask questions and to get really serious answers-and she did it with a level of humor. There were many times when we were in the midst of getting spanked or disciplined and she would start cracking up. She taught my brother and me not to take things so seriously; to work hard, but to learn to laugh at situations and laugh at yourself and then to move through it.”
Beautiful words. I gotta call my mom right now.
