My mother named me after the Biblical Queen Esther who saved her Jewish people.  I like to think Esther was scared to go before the King and ask for her people's lives, but her uncle said to her,  "...who  knoweth whether thou art come to the kingdom for such a time as this?"  I put this picture of Mary holding baby Jesus in Claire nursery to remind me that Mary was probably scared to raise Jesus the Christ, but she was chosen and she came at that time to be Christ's mother.  I am scared to be Claire's mom, but I feel chosen to "come at a time as this"
