As a proud Catholic, I heavily believe in the sacrament of baptism especially when children are younger so as to start their lives rooted in Christ. Obviously, not a lot of people think this way (i.e. the Reformation and the separation of the Catholic Church and the Protestant “rebels”) and that is totally fine by me. But when there are people in my life who believe in things like this, I can’t help but feel emotionally and spiritually connected to them through our common, shared beliefs.
Today was my sister’s best friend’s daughter’s baptism, or you could just say my niece’s baptism. B (Hannah’s best friend) has been our kindred spirit since they were still in high school and ASB together and B has since asked Hannah to be her daughter’s godmother.
Being close to both B and Hannah, I was overwhelmed with pure joy at the thought that this little angel that entered my life three months ago would be raised in the same beliefs that I was, Hannah was, and B was. And so today was her beautiful baptism.
On top of all of this, B declared me “Auntie Hope” today in front of her baby, my family, and her family. It took everything for me not to cry, No One XD I’m just so happy and blessed to have such beautiful ladies in my life, who understand, know, and love me as much as B and Hannah do even if I don’t give them as much credit as they deserve all of the time.
