Mary's Lesser Know Special Job

We were reading a Bible story the other night about the angel appearing to Mary to tell her she would be the mother of the Messiah.  The pictures in the story showed the angel and Mary, but the last page of the story just showed Mary in a field of flowers with a bouquet in her hand (as it was describing her pondering what had just happened).  After reading the story, there were questions at the end.

Me: What special job did God want Mary to do?
Grant: Hmmmm...pick flowers?
Me: No.  Remember, the angel came and told her there was a special job God wanted her to do?
Grant: (thinking and concentrating on the picture of Mary and the flowers) Was it decorate?

So we decided we'd better read the story again and listen a little better the second time.
