A few weeks ago Beyonce used her newly relaunched website to pen a heartfelt note to First Lady Michelle Obama, and for Mother’s Day Bey couldn’t pass up the chance to dedicate a handwritten piece to her favorite woman, Tina Knowles. Bey will be spending her first mother’s day with her mom, plus new daughter Blue Ivy and more than likely her sister Solange.
“Everything I am is because of you!” the note reads. “You are the first voice that ever sang to me. At every turn you push me to be better. You teach me to be true to myself and the ones I love. When I look into your eyes, I am sooo proud. Now that I’m a mother, I truly realize all the sacrifices you made for us. My love for you goes beyond what I can say. Happy Happy Mamas Day.
*Note: King B can’t help but write all of her “B” in capital letters.
Last week Tina Knowles told US Weekly that the gang would be hanging together to celebrate the occasion. “[We're] all going to be together,” Knowles said. “We’re excited because it’s Beyonce’s first Mother’s Day. I’m hoping to cook! I want to cook. My traditional soul food and maybe gumbo. That’s my favorite dish!”
