What are your expectations at Christmas time? A better question may be, “What were Mary’s expectations at the time of Christ’s birth?” Considering what happened all those years ago can help us gain perspective.

Because we mother’s, even humankind as a whole, have a commonality to behold. We all worry about what other people think.
