What it means to be a Godmother

I have had the honor of being a Godmother to my beautiful niece Taylor for the last 11 (almost 12!) years.

I’ll never forget when my brother and sister-in-law asked me, I was floored.  It meant the world to me.  I have taken the honor very seriously throughout the years.  It’s a special bond that I have with my niece, and I’ve always made it my mission to make sure she knows how lucky I feel to be her Godmother.

As I’ve become a mother 4 times over, I know how important it is to choose someone as a Godparent that is very special and very meaningful in your life.  It’s a role that isn’t to be chosen lightly.

Well… today my best friend Vera and her husband, honored me and my husband in asking us to be the Godparents of her baby-boy-to-be.

I was speechless.

I am beyond honored. I am beyond excited. And I am beyond grateful.

It absolutely means the world to me that her and her husband would choose that special role for me and my husband.  From the day Vera told me she was pregnant, I’ve felt a special little bond with this little guy.  I was rooting for this little guy to be from the very beginning… hoping that my best friend would add another little one to her family.  I’ve been excited for her and worried for her as she has progressed through this pregnancy, I know it hasn’t been easy for her.  At around 18 weeks Vera had to go on modified bedrest and it has just continued to be a tough pregnancy on her body, but she’s been a trooper.  She’s been so strong.

I couldn’t be more proud to be asked to be the Godmother of my best friend’s child.

I’ve always felt Vera must have been related to me in a past life because when we met, we just clicked instantly. Sort of like, “Where have you been all this time!? I’ve been looking for you!”

And now, in many ways, this bond between me and her little guy makes us family.

Not to mention, I get to do this with my husband, which makes it even sweeter!

  1. So wonderful and happy for all of you. You’ll be an amazing godmother and godparents together.

    Rooting for Vera and the baby every day. I’ve been there on the bedrest and it is beyond stressful and scary. xo
