Sunday Savvy 25

a photo of my bougainvillae, used for this shahai, was taken by my God daughter who is also a Godmother

Sunday savvy -
enough flowers warm
both our hearts

Today, Mother's Day at Lunch Break; I'm Wishing all Godmothers a Happy Mother's Day and inviting stories poems and what ever else you wish to share on the theme Godmother

Traditionally, godparents were informally responsible for ensuring the child's religious education was carried out, and for caring for the child should he/she be orphaned. Today, the word godparent might not have explicitly religious overtones. The modern view of a godparent tends to be an individual chosen by the parents to take an interest in the child's upbringing and personal development
