I'm not sure if Hallmark makes a card for this, but two years ago today my best friend Renee's son Jackson was baptised and she and her husband asked me to be his godmother.
Of course, I was thrilled and honored.
Look at this guy, how could I not?!
I remember the day when Renee called me and told me that she was pregnant; I was in Iowa and Steve and I were driving to visit some friends of his. It was mid-morning, I think the day before Thanksgiving. He was born the following summer, on July 4th. When I got off the phone with Renee, I called my mother at school to tell her the news, and then I think I called my father, my grandmother and my sister, haha. Of course, we were all so excited and happy.
Now, two and a half years later, Jackson is really the funniest boy I know. He's a rascal, he's rambunctious and just hilarious. The stories that Renee tells never fails to make me laugh and my biggest regret is that I live so far from him and can't see him every day or every week or even once a month. Despite that, he knows me and remembers me and every time he does see me, I get big hugs and kisses, and really, what is better than that?
