In honor of Mother's Day, DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz sent the following email to supporters asking them to sign a special Mother's Day card for Michelle Obama.
When I first came to Washington in 2005, there weren't a lot of people who understood why I carried around crayons in my purse.You see, there weren't all that many moms with young kids working in Congress -- not many people who understood what it was like balancing taking care of my constituents with taking care of my three kids, Jake, Rebecca, and Shelby.
So I was excited when Michelle Obama became the first mother in years to have young children in the White House. In the time since, I've been incredibly inspired by how she's managed to balance her duties as First Lady with what she says is her most important job -- being Sasha and Malia's mom.This Mother's Day, I want to let the First Lady know how much she's admired and appreciated.
We're lucky to have Michelle Obama as our First Lady, and Sasha and Malia are lucky to have her as a mom.Wish her a happy Mother's Day today.
