A Shari Godmother

Know you what it is to be a child? It is to be something very different from the man of today. It is to have a spirit yet streaming from the waters of baptism; it is to believe in love, to believe in loveliness, to believe in belief; it is to be so little that the elves can reach to whisper in your ear; it is to turn pumpkins into coaches, and mice into horses, lowness into loftiness, and nothing into everything, for each child has its fairy godmother in its own soul. 
Francis Thompson, English poet and ascetic (1859–1907) 

Today I was blessed to become the godmother of a precious child whose little being is full of potential. I look forward to being a part of his life as his Shari Godmother.

Fairy godmothers are supposed to work their magic to lighten the spirits and souls of their charges, but this little fellow has worked his magic on me and all who gathered today to witness his baptism. He is a child of God and God has great things planned for him!
