Michelle Obama In Mother's Day Tweet: Thanks For 'Kindling That Fire Within Me'

Former First Lady Michelle Obama has released a sweet message on Mother’s Day, thanking her mother for “kindling that fire within me." Former First Lady Michelle Obama has released a sweet message on Mother's Day, thanking her mother, Marian Robinson, for "kindling that fire within me."  "From an early age, my mom saw that I had a flame inside me and she never tempered it," Obama tweeted Sunday.

"Mom, thank you for kindling that fire within me, and for your example as a mother and a grandmother to our girls.

We would never be who we are today without you.

#HappyMothersDay, Mom.

Love you."  Obama posted a longer message on Instagram about her mother.

"Growing up, every time I'd come home from school with a story to share, my mother was there with a snack and a listening ear to hear about what was on my mind," she wrote.

"When I came home with a tale about my disastrous second-grade classroom, she marched into the school to figure out what was going on." "And as I grew older, including up through my years as First Lady, she was always there for me as a guiding light through whatever fog was clouding my path," Obama continued.

"She's always listened more than she lectured; observed more than she demonstrated.

In doing so, she allowed me to think for myself and develop my own voice."
