Oh, J. K. Rowling, how we love thee. Just when we think we can’t be more obsessed, the beloved author does something else that makes us cheer. Today, it’s J. K. Rowling’s Christmas tweets that have warmed our hearts.

ICYMI, Rowling’s Twitter presence is consistently spot-on: Rowling’s amazing tweets after the election were a bright spot on a tense day. We also just found out that Rowling is writing two new books (Merry Christmas to us!), so she’s done a lot to improve our 2016.

Rowling’s string of holiday tweets is really perfect for anyone who’s having a hard time this year. And, TBH, it feels like more people than ever are experiencing a less-than-merry holiday season. Luckily, Rowling’s words of support are here. She starts by thanking fans for their Christmas wishes.

Then, she acknowledges those who have reached out to her expressing their troubles.

Next, she hits us with some serious holiday wisdom.

Rowling follows that by acknowledging that those who are with loved ones are lucky.

After that, she gently reminds us that bad times don’t last forever.

Rowling also reveals how she felt when she was struggling.

It’s easy to forget that Rowling struggled financially as a young mother. Back then, she thought she’d never get her books published. But after struggling, she’s now one of the most famous authors in the world. Rowling reminds us that her life took a drastic turn for the better. Now, she’s doing what she loves, and writing even more books.

Rowling sends words of support to those who are having a rough holiday.

Then, she encourages her followers to be kind to themselves — after all, a holiday is just a day. It doesn’t have to be a barometer for what’s good or bad in a person’s life.

Finally, Rowling wishes her followers a happy holiday.

This holiday message is so essential. Some people are going through a rough time, and our hearts go out to them. We hope they heed Rowling’s message and take care.
