I was reading this thread and it has me asking for your help.
I am looking for a prayer that is theologically sound and…not just a consecration to Her, an whole offering of self, but to be her spiritual daughter.
Like many, I am motherless. I read that St. Teresa of Avila asked Mary to be her Mother when Teresa’s biological mother went to her Eternal Rest.
I would like to say something more than an ejaculation, and something less than what was offered in the thread linked above (although I already follow a private devotion based on the recommended links below):

I have meditated about Mary and John at the foot of the Cross, and see that she is the Mother of all mankind. But how can I make this personal? How did/you you do it?
Or, as She leads us to Her Son, I will do well to remember the wedding at Cana where She said “Do whatever He tells you.” So I try. But I also would like a personal intimacy with Mary.
Perhaps I am looking toward feeling instead of reason?
