Wondering how Mary aged way back then.
Considering the stress and suffering she endured,
The hard life it must have been,
I suppose someone in their late 40's or early 50's
As Mary must have been when she left this world,
or at least left our scholar's radar,
Would have aged to be what today's woman would be
In her 70's or 80's.

Beauty fades, but character stays.
Saintly even in old age.
Now, you remember Ms. Wee, don't you? The precious little blue angel that lives in my house? (Today, but maybe not tomorrow). And you remember the toilet tissue she dragged through the house, and the other issues I have complained about here and there. Grrrrrrr.
The other day she was very, very quiet (like a child gets when you KNOW you better go check!) So I checked.
She knows how to open drawers, using them as a ladder one at a time. This is her latest criminal act.
Be kind to yourself today.
