The Grammy-winning icon turned the big 4-0 on September 4th, and the internet was buzzing in honor of Bee's big day. One of our favorite posts? Beyonce's mom's sweet Instagram upload. Safe to say, Tina Lawson's tribute for her famous daughter has us feeling all the feels. The proud mother-of-two took to the Gram with a throwback Access Hollywood interview of Sasha Fierce.

The old video showed Bey talking about everything she would like to achieve before turning 40. Not surprisingly, her Royal Highness did everything on that checklist: starting a family, filming a documentary, and more. "You reached every one of your goals and then some," Tina gushed. "You deserve it baby, And every other blessing that God has bestowed upon you ... You are the most honest, intelligent and creative person I know ! That Virgo mind is always 10 steps ahead . There is not a mean bone in your body and no bitterness in your heart!!"

We're not crying; you're crying. But wait - it didn't end there. "Even with all of your success you have managed to still be an amazing humble, caring human being! You are loved by so many !!" B's mom added. "Today I look at you and see true Happiness !! With an amazing man that loves you and children that adore you !!! Nothing or no one can mess with that kind of love and happiness! I just want the world to know !!!" Thank you, Tina. That's the kind of birthday content we needed.
