I’m Sherri, Your Holiday Mom. This is my favorite time of year. It’s a time of reflection and appreciation for all that I’ve been blessed with. One of those blessings is my 20-year-old son, Andrew. He came out when he was 15. I held him as he cried that night, and I remember thinking how incredibly brave I thought he was, and how proud I was of him for being who he was meant to be. I want you to know that I think you too are brave, and I’m proud of you for being who you were meant to be. For standing up to those who choose not to accept you. This is truly their loss.
I realize that it’s not easy for you to be who you are because of the ignorance that plagues the world we live in. But I say to you, never lose hope. Never lose faith. Know that while you may feel alone sometimes, you are never alone. There are people that love and support you. There are people that know and understand your daily struggles and want you to know that you are strong enough to overcome these struggles. You may not know them personally, but they exist. I’m proof of that.
As I’ve told my son and I’m telling you now, nothing will ever change how wonderful I think you are. You will always be truly special to me. I will always support and love you. If you’re struggling, know that everyone goes through struggles, but you will emerge victorious if you choose to do so. Your life will be full of love and happiness if you will it to be. Don’t ever let anyone steal your joy. It’s important that you always stand confidently and know one thing is for sure, that you are loved, understood, admired, and accepted, always!
I pray you find the strength and love I am sending you in this message because that is what I wish for you your whole life long.
Enjoy your Holiday!
Love, Mom Sherri
