Christianity is part of my culture, but it is not part of my belief system. Nevertheless, I am the godmother of two lovely boys, sons of dear Sisters.
For me being a godmother means showing Big and Little Godson extra care and appreciation, and trying to build a relationship even if we are far apart. For me, one fundamental task of the godparent is to influence spiritual growth, and what I only do through good intentions now, I hope to - some day - be able to do more directly: in discussions, passing on great books or just through positive examples from life. And by the way: Happy Birthday, Little Godson, 2 years today!
