i belive no. but it is your choice. god is the 1 that really was the mirical One meaning of the word worship is "A feeling of profound love and admiration". If this is the reason for your worship then this is acceptable, for a person may have such feelings for another person.
However, where Deity is concerned the scriptures tell us that thou shalt worship God alone and no other. This is where our true worship should be directed. Worship is due only to Jesus Christ. Mary is the Mother of God, but she is not God. Therefore she is venerated and honoured, not worshipped, because she is blessed and highly favoured by God (Luke 1:28, 42 and 48).
