Did Mary Doubt?

Mary showed great faith as she accepted what God was wanting to do in her life. However, did she have her doubts? Was this why she went in “haste” to visit her cousin Elizabeth to check out if what the Angel had said was true? Did she stay there for three months to avoid those awkward questions, those snide remarks and the village gossip? I like to think she did, she was human after all. I like to think that I wouldn’t be the only one who, if visited by an angel, would still have questions, would still want more confirmation and would still, maybe, have some nagging doubts. Mary had great faith, but even those of great faith have their questions, need reassurance and do not blindly follow.
