To my darling holiday child,
Today is New Year’s day. Did you get much sleep? I love having you here with us on this first day of 2015. Come here, let’s have a big giant hug! Put your feet up, and come sit by our fireplace, I have something I want to tell you….
You are a grand and wonderful human being. I love you for exactly who you are.
In my home you are free to express yourself just as you are: your dress, your hairstyle, tattoos and piercings if you have them! I accept all of you.
Know that my heart and soul wish for you, for the coming year, is to understand that deep down, to your very essence, you are a shining bright light of love and joy. Deep down. When you feel lonely or sad, know that I will always love and accept you, and those whom you love.
Are you chilly? Here, let me wrap you up in this cozy blanket. Better? Good. Now I have one more thing to tell you…
Throughout the last few months, I have been collecting and posting the amazing letters that your holiday moms have been sending to this website, and I have read every single comment from every reader that has been posted. I have cried right along with you, and held you in my arms and held on tight. I have seen your smile and felt your happiness as you read these words of love from all of the moms here. It has been my honour and privilege to be a small part of comfort and peace that has come your way this holiday season. It has been just incredible to witness the outpouring of absolute pure love and acceptance for you!
Take all of this love and acceptance into the world. Carry it with you in your heart. Know that you can always come back here anytime to dip yourself into the warm glow of it all.
I love you to the moon and back.
Your Holiday Mom
