Mary’s visit to Elizabeth

When Mary arrived she looked worn out. The journey was bound to be tiring in her condition and I know she’d not been having an easy time in her home town and with her gossiping neighbours.
But as I saw her approaching I could feel the excitement building in me and for the first time I could really feel my baby kicking inside me – really hard. It was as if he knew that this meeting was to be very special.
So I moved quickly to the door and held Mary in my arms and we both cried a little, but from joy, not sadness. I could feel the tension draining from her and within a few minutes her attitude had changed completely. She obviously knew that here she was safe with us and she could relax. So, from a worn-out pregnant child, she suddenly blossomed into a radiant woman, full of the joy of her impending motherhood. It was an amazing sight to see.
