Being a Godmother
I have a lot of godchildren from baptism rites. Few weeks ago, I have been promoted to the next stage of sponsoring. I am now a godmother for a confirmed child and I am happy to stand as a second mother to this kid because I know I can share and show good example and give guidance to the child as I would my own.
I remember many years ago about my own confirmation when I stood in front of the bishop and vowed to always accept the Holy Spirit in my heart. The role was reversed lately. I was standing on the sponsor side to witness the confirmation of my daughter's friend in school. I soaked in the atmosphere of being a sponsor this time. And I listened intently to the celebrant's homily and imbibed the words of Christ.
I am proud to stand as a godmother because I know I fit the bill to be a mom. It is something I will cherish each time a family member or friend asks me to become a godmother to their child. It is an honor and I will gladly accept the role.
