I got a pleasant surprise at one of the Christmas parties we attended over the last few weeks. My wife's godson asked me to be his sponsor for his Confirmation this spring!
It felt something like when my sister asked me to be godfather to my nephew some 15 years ago. It felt similar; but at the same time it felt better. When my sister asked, she was asking on behalf of someone else for spiritual support. When L's godson asked me to sponsor him, it was his initiative and his choice. I'm humbled and honored he would choose me to be be with him and support him through this last Sacrament of Initiation.
Uncle Tommy is proud of you, kid!
