Just because Mother’s Day was yesterday doesn’t mean we can’t relive what happened over the weekend. While there were some hilarious posts from celebs to their mamas, there were also some that will hit you right in the feels. Just when you thought it was OK to put the tissue box away, we pull you back in.
Like this surprise from President Obama, who called three disbelieving mothers who had recently written to him with Happy Mother’s Day wishes.
Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon may have split but despite their differences, he let her know he is forever in her debt.
Dwayne Johnson just wants his mom to be happy, and like her, you’ll be crying happy tears too.
Cool Mother’s Day story.. early am flight and I’m sittin’ across from my mom when out of the blue she looks around the plane, then looks at me and says “Son, I can’t believe the life I have.. grandma and grandpa would be so proud.” I asked her, “Are you happy ma?”. Just then the flight attendant placed my moms breakfast down on the table and my mom said to me, “Am I happy?.. I used to worry about how I was going to buy groceries for us and now I just had my breakfast placed down in front of me”. She bursts into tears and says “Yes, son I couldn’t be happier”. This is the woman who when I was 14yrs old we were evicted out of our apartment in Hawaii ’cause we couldn’t afford the $180 per week rent. At this moment Im shaking my head and smiling quietly (as my mom blows her nose;) ’cause she just told me she’s happy. And y’all know when our parents tell us they’re happy, its so satisfying for us, ’cause it means we’ve done a good job for them as their kids. Happy Mother’s Day to all the deserving amazing mamas out there. And Happy Mother’s Day to my amazing mom who will no doubt kill me for posting this crying pic. #EnjoyBreakfastMom #GratefulTears #TryNotCryInTheEggs

Vanessa Lachey wrote a sweet post to her four-month-old daughter. Vanessa and husband Nick Lachey also have a son, Camden, but this was her first Mama’s Day with Brooklyn, making it extra-special.
Dear Brooklyn, I have waited my whole life to be your Mama. This is our first Mother’s Day together and I will cherish it and every one after. I will cherish every moment we have together. Every smile, laugh and tear. I am you and you are me. I will forever and always be your Mama. I am honored and blessed to call you mine. I promise to always try and give you my best self. I promise to Love you, listen to you and respect you. I will always forgive you and hope you forgive me because we will make mistakes together. On this Mothers Day, I want to thank YOU and your brother for allowing me to find myself and my heart and realize what this life has in store for us as a family. Your Daddy and I love you both very much… today and EVERY day. Happy Mother’s Day to all the Mamas out there! (@rhondadentphotography Brooklyn Elisabeth Lachey at 2 weeks old)
Gisele Bündchen thanked every female in her life, rightfully so.
On this special day I want to honor Mother Earth, my mom and all the mothers, grandmothers, great grandmothers, aunts , sisters, friends and caregivers that have been there nurturing, loving and supporting each other in the most important role of our lives . When I became a mother, I thought I had a lot to teach my kids, but what I found is that they have become my greatest teachers as they constantly teach me patience, humbleness and unconditional love. Happy Mother’s Day to all! I love you mom ! Neste dia especial gostaria de honrar a mãe terra, minha mãe e todas as mães, avós, bisavós, tias, irmãs, amigas e babás que estão lá nutrindo, amando e apoiando umas as outras no papel mais importante das nossas vidas. Quando me tornei mãe eu pensei que tinha muito a ensinar aos meus filhos, mas o que descobri é que eles se tornaram meus maiores professores, constantemente me ensinando paciência, humildade e amor incondicional. Feliz dia das mães a todas! Eu te amo muito mãe!!

The queen in my life! What would I do without you momma! You mean the world to me and so much more! Today I celebrate you and all the love that you’ve given to Joe, Kim and I. We are who we are because of you so thank you for the many sacrifices you made to give us a better life. Now it’s my turn to give to you, anything in this world you may want or need you already know it’s YOURS!

Happy Mothers Day to my mom! My biggest cheerleader, the woman that taught me how to nurture and love others! To always see the good in others… She taught me to be kind and giving! Isn’t the phrase when you get older, ‘oh no I’m turning in to my parents’… Well I love that I’m becoming more like my mother! 🙂 I love you momma xo @paintvalues check out the beautiful message my mom wrote on my website at www.juliannehough.com (link in bio)

And Taylor Swift reached out on Tumblr and consoled a fan who was grieving her late mother, telling her she had lived through her own “worst fear.”
Mother’s Day has come and gone but that doesn’t mean you don’t have to call your mom RIGHT NOW. Go. Do it. We understand.
