Why Old Lady Gladys?

My name is Gladys and I am not an old lady.  I am hoping one day I will be but for now I am a 34 year old woman named Gladys.  But let’s be honest the name belongs to an old lady. But I am cool with it, because whenever someone yells “Gladys!” I am pretty sure its for me.

Either way its a cool name and here are some awesome Gladys’ to go with that kick-ass name:

The woman on the left is Gladys Knight known as the Empress of Soul, she is an artist, song writer, business woman, humanitarian and author.  She’s been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, she has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and she is listed on Rolling Stone’s list of Greatest Singers of All Time.

The woman on the right is my beautiful grandmother, I am her namesake.  She was an amazing woman, who came to this country from Costa Rica and raised 7 children while working at her Tailor Shop alongside her husband.  She also raised two of her grandchildren and she is the main reason I am so proud of my name.

And last but certainly not least there is this Gladys Hardy, who loves Jesus but drinks a little.

Have you ever known a Gladys?
