Happy Holidays! I’m so blessed to have you in my home this year! Have you been well? Have you been eating enough? Keeping warm? I worry, you know. I bet you thought with this letter you’d be getting only a Holiday Family, but no! You’re family all year long and I’m blessed to welcome you into the Residence Hall where I currently live (until December 16th). We’re all excited to welcome you into our hall and so happy to make you a part of our adopted family!
Enough about me- how have you been? I hope this year has been a good one and I want you to know that you are so very loved this holiday season. I can’t wait to share it with you! Your Holiday Family will be so happy that we’ll be sharing our Christmas orange rolls with another child this year. We’ll watch A Christmas Story in our pajamas and curl up on the couch, as tradition dictates.
Our family is one that loves to give every piece of themselves, so here I am, giving a piece of myself -my love during this Holiday season- to you! I want you to know that you are loved with every piece of my heart and that no matter what, you will always be welcomed as my Holiday Child. I hope your holidays are everything you deserve for them to be. Because you deserve the very best, sweetheart. I promise you that. Now, I have something very important to tell you which, I will admit, I read online and absolutely loved.
Even if you don’t look like someone you find attractive, that doesn’t mean you aren’t attractive. Flowers and Christmas lights are two completely different things, but both are very beautiful. And so are you. Promise me you won’t forget this? You are a beautiful and amazing person and I love you because of the person you have always been. You are all I could ever wish for in my child and I’m so lucky to be able to call you my own Holiday Child.
I have so much more that I would like to say, but I think I’ll save that for other letters, somewhere down the way. Just remember I love you, okay? I am so proud of you for being who you are. Never be scared to show the people who look down on you how wonderful you really are.
I love you so much,
You Holiday Mom, Matti
