Say the word godmother, and most people think of a certain wand-waving character from the Disney classic Cinderella. However, in real life, godmothers are ordinary women trying to make a difference in the life of a child. They serve their godchildren as spiritual mentors, backup parents, role models, confidantes, and friends.
For all that, godmothers deserve some serious kudos. While Mother’s Day is primarily about expressing appreciation for moms, it’s also a perfect time to send some words of thanks to the women who have taken on this important role.
If you’re searching for the right words, check out the following list of Mother’s Day wishes for a godmother. Some of these greetings are warm, while others are whimsical. But in one way or another, they all celebrate a lady who’s tried her best to make sure her godchild lives happily ever after.
Note: While these greetings are generally written from the perspective of the godchild, many work equally well as a message of thanks from a parent of the godchild.
