I was asked by my cousin to be the godmother of her child. I was honored and “Sure, I replied easily”. So, I headed to her house yesterday and attended the child dedication ceremony. It was a Christian ceremony and the minister sees to it that the godparents knows their responsibility.
Talking about my responsiblity as a godmother… Firstly, I should act as the second parent of the child by helping her parents to let the child grow in the ways of God. I am also committed to include the child in my prayers, provide guidance, love and support everytime the child needs it.
Upon knowing all these things, I realized that being a godmother is a serious responsibility. My responsibility does not only end on giving baby gifts on special occasions but it is a lifetime responsibility of being a blessing to the child as well as to the family.
