I had to crash this party because today we have been married for 25 years. The idea that you would put up with me for a quarter of a century is a remarkable testament to what a saintly, wonderful, patient person you are.
It was so adorable!
Michelle teared up when Barack praised her “strength, grace, determination and honesty. It’s no wonder that as people got to know you the way that I got to know you, they fell in love. You have also been an example to our daughters and to the entire country.”
Michelle smiled throughout the entire video and the crowd of people around her applauded Barack for his thoughtful surprise.
He has shared the most touching anniversary message with his wife. He listed some of the things he most admires about her, including her strength, grace, determination, honesty, and the fact that she looks “so good, doin’ all this.”
