Thank your fairy godmother this Mother's Day.
In fairy tales, a fairy godmother is a mentor or parent-like figure who uses her magic to help or otherwise support the hero of the story. In real life, godmothers are appointed at birth or baptism to act as a spiritual and supportive guide for their godchild. Godmothers are traditionally considered to be an infant's religious sponsor, but in families that aren't religious, godmothers take on a more secular mentorship role. From adolescence through adulthood, godmothers provide unconditional love and thoughtful guidance that we're oftentimes more willing to be open to and accept when it comes from a non-parent.
