Taylor took time this Mother’s Day to console a grieving fan who just lost her mom — and her message was beyond touching.
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.
Kaileen’s Tumblr post hit home for Taylor whose own mum 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.”
"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"
"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. :)"
