Taylor Swift really cares about her fans, and she often takes the time to pen messages of encouragement and advice for them. But on Mother’s Day, she wrote one fan an extra-special message after she revealed she really needed a hug because her mother had recently passed away.
The fan, whose name is Kaileen, aka iced coffee girl, took to Tumblr to tell Swift the heartbreaking story of how her mom died and how she was really missing her.
“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,” Kaileen wrote.
However, Kaileen thanked Swift in the message, saying that it was because of her that she managed to find inner strength.
“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,” she wrote.
The “Shake It Off'” hit maker took the time to respond to her fan’s touching message, with a powerful one of her own.
“Kaileen — I love you so much and can’t imagine what you must be feeling today. You’ve lived through my worst fear,” Swift began her message — she also recently revealed that her own mom had had a cancer diagnosis.
She continued, “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. :)”
It’s always great to see when a celebrity truly cares for their fans and their well-being. Hopefully, Swift’s message made Kaileen’s day just a little brighter.
