A COLLECTOR’S ITEM OF ‘ME’… THAT’S RARELY SEEN!!! PHOTOS OF ‘MYSELF’ CAPTURING ‘ME’!!!


A COLLECTOR’S ITEM OF MYSELF:

(I’ve been ‘missing’ since my son, Tommy, died.  I am always searching for ‘myself’… somehow, I ‘disappeared’… during my grief an older woman has taken my place… when I look in my mirror, I don’t know her… so, when ‘I see myself’, I am seeing an old friend, someone I know well… I run for my camera… to ‘capture me’!!!  This hasn’t happened often since Tommy’s been gone… is it possible for ‘me to come back?’  This is so rare… you can get a glimpse of ‘ME’!  :)))

I Saw Myself Today… I Was So Happy To See ‘Me’… I Smiled

By Gloria Faye Brown Bates/aka Granny Gee

I was dressing to go out today, when I noticed in the mirror ‘myself’ peeking out at me with a mischievious grin!  I ran for my Iphone, and began taking photos!  I saw ‘me’!  I was so happy that… I smiled… a lot!

Here are some photos of ‘Me’… that you rarely see anymore!  Since Tommy’s been gone… this has become a ‘rarity’….

Notice the necklace… Tommy’s gold chain with my ‘class ring‘ on it.  Many years ago, I had the jeweler melt it down to make a gold nugget… to give to my son (Tommy) to wear next to his heart… always.  He could touch it anytime, know his mother gave it to him out of love… he would have had it ‘if I were gone’.

I hope I can stay here, not ‘disappear’ again.  I have been so happy to see ‘ME’!!!  If I get gone again… at least I have a ‘collector’s item’ of ……. ‘Myself’.  These photos of ‘ME’ are so rare… since Tommy’s been gone.

Don’t get me wrong…. I like the ‘older lady’ who has come to live in my mirror now…. but, sometimes, I cry to see someone I knew, know … so well.  I do miss …. ‘Me’.  I’m going to try to hold onto me right this minute… and not ‘let Me go’….. :))))))))

I’m trying to hold onto ‘Me’…………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

    • :))) Thank you…. I ‘almost saw the old me’… oh wow, what happened to me? :))) It’s so hard to get used to the mirror and not see ‘me’… that I remember. But… it’s okay… but, I still get happy if I ‘see me!’ :)))
