Merry Christmas, my child…

heather gHello Dear Child

I am writing to you to wish you a Merry Christmas.

Although this may not seem like a very merry time for you, I would like you to know that I am a “mom” writing to you to tell you that you deserve to have a Merry Christmas.

You also deserve to be happy, Blessed and loved.

And although, we have never met, I have met what you stand for. I have seen young people struggle as they attempt to figure out who they are, kids who have had a difficult time, who couldn’t find their way because of the road blocks in their lives.

I tell my own teenager, he can overcome anything but he has to know that he can do it and so can you. I tell him he is not alone and nor are you. He has the love and support of me and so do you. He will find his way, even though it seems so dark and so will you.

I want you to be assured that you have someone in your corner, someone who will be thinking of you this coming Christmas and the days after. Wrap yourself in that knowledge. When you are lonely remember this letter and the woman who has written it to you. Please feel the love and acceptance that I am writing into every single word and paragraph. Try to remember this letter when things seem so desperate and sad.

Remember my letter and the words you deserve to be happy, Blessed and loved.

Merry Christmas my Child.

From your Holiday Mom, Heather

    Thank you. I have recently realized that I’m bisexual. I haven’t come out to my parents yet. I’m afraid to. I don’t know how they are going to react. I know they’re okay with gay people, but they’ve said some stuff that makes me think they don’t understand bisexuality. Anyway, thank you again.

      Hi Julianna.
      Thank you for replying to me. I’ve been sick (great timing) and literally just sat down in the quiet of Christmas Eve to read your reply.
      I hope and pray that that talk with your parents goes well.
      Just know that no matter how they react to your news, they love you. They may not handle it well. They may not know what to say. Just give it time.
      I’m always here for you if you need to “talk”.
      Merry Christmas.
