Did This Collection Help You Better Understand the Role That Godmothers Play?

It’s hard to take care of kids; that’s a fact many say. People also say that it takes a village to raise a child.

After all, it’s not just about feeding kids and ensuring they keep breathing. If you have a child, you’re tasked to mold them into upright and moral people who will someday make significant contributions to society.

Parents can’t take on this task alone; they need godfathers and godmothers to support them. This is why, in so many ways, godmothers are considered to be a child’s second mom.

Godmothers help shape a child’s moral compass; they love and support them like a mom and take pride in their achievements, too. Our godmothers are a blessing because we can turn to them for advice or help whenever needed.

There’s a special kind of bond between a godmother and her godchild. After all, there are just some things you aren’t comfortable sharing with your mom or dad; this is where our godparents step in.

So, if you’re a godchild, show your godmother how thankful you are for her presence in your life! At the same time, as a godmother, remember your role and responsibility, and mold your godchildren into the best person they can be!

Poetry, philosophy, history, and movies are all topics I love writing about! However, my true passion is in traveling, photography, and finding common ground to which everyone from different cultures can relate.

With the many places I’ve been to, I found that love, inspiration, and happiness are some things that bring people together. No matter how different we are on the outside, I’m a true believer that our emotions don’t lie; if you dig deep into our psyche, we’re all the same inside.

This belief was further amplified when I joined Quote Ambition. Through the quotes I’ve read, collected, organized, and written about, I found that humans are resilient, creative, and compassionate.

We take from each others’ hearts and courage, and it’s through our individual experiences that we learn how to rise above our challenges and pain. In so many ways, Quote Ambition is a platform that allows people from all over the world to gain the inspiration they need anytime, anywhere!
