I’m trying to find a good gift for my sister for Mother’s Day - she is my son’s Godmother, although she has sort of fallen away from the faith unfortunately. It’s a complicated issue that I don’t quite understand and I’m quite certain that it may have something to do with her husband’s upbringing (I think his family practiced an unusual, very strict interpretation of christianity - I don’t know much about it other than the fact that it left a very bad taste in his mouth and he is very strongly against practicing any sort of worship).
Anyway, I want to help my son choose a gift that is thoughtful and also gently reminds her of her role as his Godmother. Any suggestions? I really don’t want it to be preachy or anything, but I am also uncertain as to whether or not she really understands that she does have a role at all. I know this is all stuff I should have thought about when we chose her, but I didn’t understand as much about the faith back then as I do now, not to mention I really didn’t get the full extent of her situation at home.
I do know that she believes though.
Any ideas? Maybe a photo frame with some sort of inscription of what a godmother is to a child? where would I find something like that? Or a book about Godmothers? that would be even better?
What do you think?
