The Annunciation

I remember being struck by this painting when it was first introduced to me and I got to view it myself at the Tate Britain in Londonabout four years ago now. Carrying my first baby this Christmas season, I guess I've found myself wondering more and more about who Mary was. This image often comes to mind. The simple beauty and emotion of it still moves me.

ME TOO! I have several pictures of Mary up in the house and I had this exact thought yesterday. Since having my own children her story sounds so intriguing to me.
