See, it’s Mother’s Day, and as we learned about a month ago, 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.
But as Taylor Swift so often does — because she’s the bestest ever and ever — she’s turned her attention and concern to one of her fans who reached out with her own heartbreaking struggle to get through the day.
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. 🙂
