There are a few things in this world that always feel like benevolent forces for good — things like sunsets, puppies, and Taylor Swift.*

On Mother's Day, one of Swift's fans wrote her a note on Tumblr about how Swift's music helped her after her mother's death last year:

Dear Taylor,
It's me, iced coffee girl, and I could really use a hug. Today is Mother's Day, a day most people spend with their mothers thanking them for everything they do. But, for me, I can't spend this day with my mom because she's in heaven. Last January, my mom passed away and a piece of my heart left with her. My mom was my best friend, the one I laughed with, the one I cried with, and the one I loved with my whole heart. For a while, I felt empty. But as you've done many times before, you filled that hole. You took me out of my sad place and made me happy. And because of you, I got through something that was the hardest thing in the world for me. Today's going to be another hard day, but I know with you on my side I can get through anything. I love you. Always, Kaileen
