"I Wonder" Wednesday

I have been wondering about Mary today. Sometimes I wonder why the bible doesn't provide more insight to her experience. I wonder how she felt carrying a child given to her by God? I wonder if people stared at her when she walked down the street? I wonder if her parents accepted Jesus as their Grandson? I wonder how her friends and neighbours reacted to her news? I wonder the same about Joseph's parents? I wonder how Mary told Joseph about Jesus? I wonder if Mary asked "why me?" I wonder if Mary knew the importance of the baby she carried in her womb?

Along the same lines, I've always wondered, how much did Mary and Joseph really know about who Jesus was? They knew he was miraculous and from God, of course, but there are some things that indicate they may not have had complete understanding. Like when he was in the temple at age 12 and they didn't understand what he meant about "my Father's house"...
