Gloria Faye Brown Bates … photos of me … left photo taken December 2018
The right photo taken approximately 2014. Photos owned by ME.
I tried to change name of my blog here to just my name. It won’t do because it would cause such an ‘intense’ change to everything else. That’s okay. I will leave it as it is.
I put both photos above so, you know it’s ME 🙂 I have come so far since the photo on the right was taken. I have found peace with the loss of my son, Tommy. Plus, I have been picking the pieces of my shattered self up, putting me back together again. I look like ME again.
I will write why I say ME a little later. I’m not self-centered … it’s just I am so grateful, thankful to see “ME’ again. I know this person now in the mirror. When younger I would probably be vain to a degree … today, I just take big sighs of relief to look normal again, to dress in something without wondering if it’ll fit.
Truthfully, people show more respect like they did before I put on so much weight after Tommy died. It didn’t matter to me then … Tommy died and nothing meant anything to me much less anyone respecting or not.
This is update on my blog here … the name will have to stay the same. I will write by my name and not use ‘aka Granny Gee’ ever again.
