Why did Jesus appear in a special way to Mary Magdalene and no others at the tomb?

Peter and John came to the tomb as well, so why did Jesus not appear to them? Why only Mary? What was so special about her to Jesus? What was she doing that Peter and John did not do?

John 20:1 - 18

NKJV - 1 Now on the first day of the week Mary Magdalene went to the tomb early, while it was still dark, and saw that the stone had been taken away from the tomb. 2 Then she ran and came to Simon Peter, and to the other disciple, whom Jesus loved, and said to them, "They have taken away the Lord out of the tomb, and we do not know where they have laid Him.

I believe Jesus appeared to her first is because she was there! It seems like she was there even before the other women. Thinking He was the gardener she asked for His body.Her love for Him was very special. She was sobbing, she longed for Him.He came!
