Hazy Mary

Now Christmas is over and I guess for many of us the images of Christmas are receding as we prepare to take the decorations down and  pack away the crib for another year.

This image of Mary struck me as it is a bit how I feel now that the New Year is here... hazy.

I know that some people feel close to Mary but I have never really been able to relate that closely to her. I am not a mother so that is one obvious reason but I often wonder how she must have felt being the mother of the Son of God and as his life unfolded how did she cope with that knowledge ?

I have never been able to get beyond the question but she is a hazy image and this image is a good one for me to stick with. Just being with the mystery is enough.
