Blessed Virgin Mary
Over the years I have nurtured my devotion to Mary by collecting statues of her. It really happened slowly and by accident. I would see a statue of her at a tag or garage sale and my heart wouldn't allow me to leave her there. Some of them are shabby and missing some paint here and there... some of them are like new. One in particular was given to me by a special old friend (the "Young Mary" sweeping). I like to look at this one thinking she is working hard passing the time until her Son is born. They are all beautiful and special to me. Along with my living room curio which is graced with her presence, I have others throughout the house. I have enough, but if I see Mary at a sale and she looks at me...
