It’s not often that we say thank you to godparents. Yet, in the grand scheme of things, they deserve just as much appreciation as our birth parents.
The best godparents remember birthdays, and they keep asking about us (and our children) even when we become adults. They are, in every way, our shadow parents.
How do you say thank you to godparents to make them feel really special? We have a few ideas.
Say thank you to godparents: to your godparents when your parents are no longer alive
These past few years, especially since Mom and Dad died, have been a revelation of sorts. So many things and people have changed so suddenly, but you haven’t.
You continue to be very kind to me. You continue to be very generous with your time and advice. I know you are my godmother, but that’s no guarantee for love. Thank you very much for loving me.
You have always been by my side, throughout my whole life, like guardian angels. You have been there for me through the easier times when everything was ok and later when things weren’t so good.
I want you to know that I appreciate all the love you’ve shown me, and I love you very much!
I have always wondered about what I could do to thank you, and I can’t find anything worthy. All I can say is thank you, and I mean it from the bottom of my heart.
Most of all, I think you’re the best godparents a guy like me could ask for. I am sure Mom and Dad would have been very proud of you too. Thank you so much.
One constant in my life stood out, and that’s you, Mrs. Brand. You have been my lovely godmother since day one, and here you are after hundreds of life changes. Thank you so much for yesterday, today, and tomorrow.
Say thank you to godparents: to your godparents when your parents are still alive
Since you are the best godparents someone could get, I want to thank you. You both are the kindest, most loving humans on this planet.
You’ve always cared so deeply for me, and I love you too. I want to thank you both so much. Also, Mom and Dad say hi.
I know it’s a lot of subtle things over the years, but I am very grateful. I am sure that Dad tells you this all the time, but you make a terrific godfather.
I have always wanted to express my appreciation for you, but I don’t always know how to find the right words when I need them the most.
In all honesty, however, having Mom, Dad, and you in my life continues to make me feel like the luckiest son (and godson) in the world. Thank you for that feeling every day.
You still suggest tips on how I could live better. I have marvelous parents, but you are the best godfather I could ever want.
I hope you know that I appreciate all of your gestures of love, and I love you too. Thank you.
I cannot forget that big box of flowers that I got on the day I was promoted. I won’t ever forget the love and advice that you have given me on a regular basis.
I think you’re a special human being. They probably never tell you, but Mom and Dad think you’re a terrific godfather too. That’s the one thing we agree on.
Say thank you to godparents: to your friends who agreed to be your child’s godparents
I know how special and important a task it is. I am particularly grateful that you two, my best friends in the whole world, agreed to handle it with me. I am sure that Tim is in safe hands whenever he is with you.
Thank you guys for becoming Tim’s godparents. If I’ve never mentioned it before, there is no other couple that I’d rather trust my baby with than you two. You both are people who I know best and love dearly.
I acknowledge that it’s no easy task to be godparents. I am forever thankful to you both. God bless you.
I saw the acceptance message. Thank you; it means the world to Grace and I that you have accepted to be godparents to our little Timmy.
I have always wanted only the best individuals to be my children’s godparents. I am very honored that you guys accepted the challenge. If you ever need us to return the favor, we are right here for you and ready to go.
Thank you so much for becoming Jenney’s godmother. I was so hoping that you would say ‘yes’ because you were always the only option for me.
I probably say this a lot, but I really want the best people around Jenny as she grows up. I believe it’s true that it takes a village to raise a child.
Thank you, Dora. You are the kind of woman to whom I want my daughter to look as she matures.
Thank you for becoming Kitty’s godmother. You are the first person I asked, and it’s a real honor knowing that you will take on the role immediately.
P.S. If you ever need a committed godparent for your future children, I am available.
I have always appreciated how selfless you’ve always been with me and how you’ve both always been wonderful examples of friendship. There is really no better choice for my baby’s godparents, so thank you both so much.
Thank you for accepting to be my kid’s godparents. I couldn’t think of anyone else when I was considering who could become my daughter’s godparents.
I’ve known you two for a long time, and I’ve seen you both work together as parents to your own children; When I saw this, I knew that there could be no better option.
I am thrilled that my good friends get to look over my kid as his godparents. Thank you.
We are thrilled that you guys have accepted because we’ve always looked up to you as parents. Now Eddie and Lindy can officially be siblings!
It gives me hope and comfort knowing that two kind, good, and capable friends of mine will be there for my baby when or if I am no longer available. Thank you guys so much. God bless you.
My godfather was a really kind, loving guy, and he was way more charming than my real father.
I am sure that I learned more from him than all of my male birth relatives combined. Not to draw comparisons or anything, but I see a lot of him in you. I am sure that my boy will be in good hands from now on.
There may be no easy way to say thank you to godparents, but that doesn’t mean you have to skip them year after year. Sometimes, the simplest phrases are the best to use.
If you need to say thank you to godparents, but you can’t find the words to use, we hope the ideas above can stir your creativity.
