The former first lady’s caption read: “Happy birthday to the woman who guided me through life.

“Your love, your support—all your thoughtful advice—mean more to me than you’ll ever know.

You have always been my backstop – a calm and non-judgmental witness to my life and an essential source of my sanity.

“Thank you for teaching me to trust my own judgment and always giving me those much-needed reality checks.

“I’ve devoted a chapter to sharing your great parenting advice in The Light We Carry, and I can’t wait for everyone to take in all your words of wisdom. I love you so much mom!’

In the photo, Michelle is shown wearing a black dress and a cheerful smile as she wraps her arm around Marian, who can be seen in a beige cardigan and colorful top, smiling from ear to ear as Michelle hugged her.

The touching tribute comes just a week after Michelle announced her new book The Light We Carry, due out November 15 and featuring an entire chapter “dedicated” to the former first-mother-in-law.

Michelle’s book is said to be “a collection of stories and practices” that have helped her throughout her life, and contains questions that keep the author up at night, such as, “How do I know I’m good enough?” How do I bring my whole self to the table? How can I overcome my fears?’

‘I didn’t see it that way. My mother is an incredibly intelligent and insightful person about life in general.”

Since leaving the White House, the former first lady has been busy as an author and podcast host and has spoken out on a variety of issues, including encouraging people to vote at When We All Vote’s Summit.
