Tazia: I'm sorry, I was frozen.
Hi, my name is Tazia, and I'm here at the White House because
I've never been here before, and this is my first time.
And I'm really excited.
And I forgot to say happy Mother's Day!

Taylor: Happy Mother's Day.
I just wanted to thank you for all the things you did.
And happy Mother's Day, thanks for being there when I needed
you most!
First Lady Michelle Obama: For me, when I think of Mother's Day, I think of my own mom,
and this day wouldn't be the same for me without her here,
so when we were planning this event today to honor our
nation's mothers, we wanted to make sure that all of you could
bring along those special people in your own lives as well.
Samantha: Happy Mother's Day, mommy!
I love you.
I like your cooking.
Jill Biden: My son Beau is a major in the Delaware Army
National Guard.
He was deployed for a year to Iraq,
so I know what it feels like for a mom to see that familiar
handwriting from a son or a daughter thousands
of miles away.
For Mother's Day, Full Circle Home arranges for gift boxes to
be sent on behalf of service members to their loved ones.
The boxes are filled with pampering products,
and most importantly, a handwritten note from their
deployed loved ones.
