Heartbreaking Taylor Swift pens sweet letter to fan who lost her mother

And here we thought we *might* get through this day without being reduced to tears.

Sunday (May 10) is probably a pretty bittersweet occasion indeed for Taylor Swift, as her own mother Andrea Finlay was recently diagnosed with cancer. Which means Taylor and her family have probably got a lot on their minds right about now, and all the mommyish sentimentality that his holiday invokes is probably making the tissues fly over at the Swift household.

On Tumblr yesterday, a young girl named Kaileen reached out to Swift to ask for a hug and some comfort because she lost her own mother recently and has been having some trouble coping with this day. Here is her letter:

Dear Taylor,
It’s me, iced coffee girl, and I could really use a hug. Today is Mother’s Day, a day most people spend with their mothers thanking them for everything they do. But, for me, I can’t spend this day with my mom because she’s in heaven. Last January, my mom passed away and a piece of my heart left with her. My mom was my best friend, the one I laughed with, the one I cried with, and the one I loved with my whole heart. For a while, I felt empty. But as you’ve done many times before, you filled that hole. You took me out of my sad place and made me happy. And because of you, I got through something that was the hardest thing in the world for me. Today’s going to be another hard day, but I know with you on my side I can get through anything. I love you. Always, Kaileen

Swift thoughtfully responded in kind to the touching request and lifted the veil just a bit on her own experience with the threat of such sadness.

Kaileen- I love you so much and can’t imagine what you must be feeling today. You’ve lived through my worst fear. I’m so sorry you can’t spend today with her. It’s not fair, and there’s no reason why you should feel okay about it. No one should ever expect you to feel normal today. I admire and respect your ability to put forth such a sunny, sweet disposition when you’ve been through something so dark and tragic so recently. I never would’ve guessed by your attitude or your posts. I never would’ve known if you hadn’t told me. Sending you a huge hug today.
Gonna go get iced coffee and cheers to you. :)
