What a delightful glimpse into a possible slice of Mary's life. I love that you had her enjoying a joke of her own making, with scripture her inspiration for it! This was all very believable.

Very imaginative, especially since Jesus was 30 years old when he started his earthly ministry. And who knows how many other children Mary had? But overall good writing.

What a clever and creative take on Mary's empty nest. I loved the last part, and could just hear her chuckle as she envisioned the gold ring in her cousin's nose... what a hoot!

Dolores, Very interesting. I really enjoyed the MC's voice throughout. I was looking for a different ending and was surprised by the one you chose. I'm glad that in the very beginning of things Mary had a mind tuned to God. And I'm glad she lived when she did, because had she lived today, a friend such as Rachel would have possibly tried to persuade her to have an abortion.
