Our magical daughter came to visit us for an overnight, and we were thrilled to see her. You can have a child who isn’t related to you by blood, but by love, and that’s why our God-daughter is so precious to us.
I vividly remember when her mother asked us to take the godparent role. We were flattered but for us it was no honorary title. A god-parent has a very serious duty to perform, but in her case it has hardly been necessary to steer her in the direction of the spiritual. She is very spiritual just by nature.
After her mother died at a tragically young age, she knew that she had us to fall back on, and she has always regarded our home as her second home. When she is in need, she knows who to call!
She was here for a wedding and spent an overnight with us, sleeping on the floor of our tiny den. I had so much fun, it was a real pleasure to see her in her beauty and her youth. She is bright, kind, complex and deeply spiritual—just about perfect, as far as I’m concerned!
