Former President Barack Obama and former First Lady Michelle Obama celebrated their 26th anniversary today, and they both took to Twitter to celebrate it in heartwarming fashion.
President Obama called Michelle an “extraordinary partner” who can always make him laugh, adding that she’s his “favorite person to see the world with.” Included in the tweet was a photo of Michelle in profile, looking out the window of an airplane at a sea of clouds. It was a succinct, sincere message.

First Lady Michelle responded to President Obama’s tweet by thanking him for “26+ years of love, trust, and respect.” She also thanked him for lifting her up and honoring her as well as their children. She added that every day she’s with him reminds her of what a “treasure” he is.
Thank you @barackobama for 26+ years of love, trust, and respect – for being a man who always lifts up and honors me and our wonderful girls. Each day I’m with you, I’m reminded of what a treasure you truly are to us all. https://t.co/dfgJRMyWJj

The last bit, in particular, will certainly strike a chord with many Americans who now appreciate President Obama even more than when he was in office. Michelle is speaking for all of us when she calls her husband a treasure. Now, more than ever it’s nice to be reminded that there are people like the Obamas who believe in the better nature of the United States.
Their beautiful relationship also offers a strong contrast to the current occupants of the White House, who seem to be barely able to tolerate each other. Whereas the Obamas are warm and loving towards each other, the Trumps are cold if not outright adversarial.
Twitter users flocked to the Obama tweets today to offer their congratulations, thanks, and general appreciation.
