Amid her husband Joe Giudice's legal battles, it's been a tough year for Teresa Giudice. But The Real Housewives of New Jersey mom has put on a brave face, and her friends and family are inspired by her strength and continued commitment to motherhood.
On the holiday, Teresa shared a photo of a sweet handmade card from her daughter Audriana Giudice. The message read: "Dear the most best mommy in the history of the world, Teresa Giudice ... Happy Mothers Day!!!"
The note continued: "Happy Mother's Day mommy! I love you sooo much! I am so grateful to have you in my life! I can never ask for a better mom! You mean the world to me and I love youuu! You are the best most loving, grateful and bravest mommy ever! In fact mommy, I can't even explain how I love you! I love you to the moon and back!" The 9-year-old also drew big, colorful hearts on the card.
Teresa's eldest daughter, Gia Giudice, also shared a special holiday message on Instagram. Posting a snap of herself and her mom, the college-bound teen wrote: "Happy Mother's Day to my best friend and to the strongest woman I know. I love you."
Of course, Mother's Day also brought back memories of Teresa's own mother, Antonia Gorga, who passed away in 2017. Teresa wrote on Instagram, "Today I struggle as I don’t get to spend Mother’s Day with my wonderful mom, I miss her every single day & know she’s protecting me,my guardian angel. I wish I got just one more day.
I’m so lucky to have learned from her & so grateful for my four gorgeous girls who I have the pleasure of hearing them call me ‘mommy.’"
