I feel so very blessed to connect with you and share in the spirit of the holidays. I hope that wherever you are, you are taking care of yourself and that you are safe, warm and finding some sense of peace. I want you to know that I am so very proud of your courage and strength. It can be a very difficult decision to open up about being LGBTQ – and even more difficult when we don’t feel accepted and loved by those closest to us. I want you to know that I accept you and I love you.
I would gladly wrap my arms around you and give you a giant bear hug. I would tell you that you are a unique and wonderful soul and that you are free to rejoice in all of the glorious gifts that make you – you. I know that it must be difficult at times to believe in these things, and that you face adversity and lack of acceptance on your journey. Well, I am here to tell you that you are beautiful, wonderful and completely welcome in my life. With me you are free to be your true and authentic self. You will suffer no judgment, no negativity and no hurt. You are magnificent and you will do wonderful things in this life.
Never be afraid to be your true self. I know it might not feel like it now, but in time you will find more people that will lift you up and celebrate the person that you are. They will look at you as I am now and see your loving heart and your tender smile. They will nurture and embrace you and want to share in your shining light. You are exactly who you are meant to be – never doubt that.
And so, during this holiday season, I raise my glass to you and I toast to your spirit and your strength. And I ask that if you feel scared or alone that you think of me and feel the warmth and glow of the love that I am sending your way. Happy holidays my sweet child. I love you.
Love Your Holiday Mom
