So sweet! Just when we thought we couldn’t be any more obsessed with Taylor Swift, she goes ahead and gives us one more reason to love her. Taylor took time this Mother’s Day to console a grieving fan who just lost her mom — and her message was beyond touching.
Out of all the millions of fans who send Taylor Swift, 25, messages on social media, one in particular stood out to the country-pop superstar. On May 10, a diehard Swiftie by the name of Kaileen Fox, reached out to Tay-Tay, explaining how Mother’s Day was especially hard this year after losing her mom last January. Check out Taylor’s emotional response to Kaileen’s letter, and grab a box of Kleenex!
Taylor Swift Message To Fan On Tumblr: Sends Her A Hug On Mother’s Day
Kaileen’s Tumblr post hit home for the “Shake It Off” singer, whose own mom, Andrea Swift, 57, is currently battling cancer.
“She follows so many people but she decided to choose me to reply to? Surreal. I honestly still can’t believe she took the time out of her day to write me a message,” Kaileen told E! News about Taylor’s heartfelt note. “I told her my story because I think of her as my best friend and she deserves to know what’s going on in my life. I never expected she would reply as if I was her best friend and she was comforting me.”
“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,” Kaileen wrote on her blog. “But, for me, I can’t spend this day with my mom because she’s in heaven.”
Kaileen went on to mention that Taylor’s songs and positive outlook on life helped her through the hard times.”Today’s going to be another hard day, but I know with you on my side I can get through anything,” Kaileen wrote to her favorite singer. “I love you.”
Well, guess what? Taylor loves Kaileen, too. She let her young fan know by offering up some personal words of encouragement.
“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,” the 25-year-old wrote on Tumblr. “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.”
But wait — it gets even more adorable. Taylor continued, “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. :)”
Just like Kaileen called her mom her “best friend,” Taylor also shares the same type of relationship with her own mother. After Taylor announced to the world that her mom was diagnosed with cancer, fans just like Kaileen sent an influx of well wishes to the blonde beauty. Check out some of the sweetest tweets!
