One of the most lovable mother/daughter duo’s of all time is the Gilmore Girls, Lorelai (Lauren Graham) and Rory (Alexis Biedel.)

What better way to celebrate Mother’s Day than a throwback tear-jerker to when Lorelai and friend, Sookie St. James (played by Melissa McCarthy) watched Rory graduate from Yale.

During her valedictorian speech Rory said to her Mama, “But my ultimate inspiration comes from my best friend – The dazzling woman from whom I received my name and my life’s blood, Loralei Gilmore… As she guided me through these incredible 18 years, I don’t know if she ever realized that the person I most wanted to be was her.”

Lorelai and Sookie promised each other they wouldn’t cry – A promise that was quickly broken after that tribute!

We can all take notes from Rory on how to make Mom feel like a million bucks today!
