Tribute Tuesday



Tribute Tuesday comes to us via Wayne and his wonderful blog.. (you gotta go see the pretty snowy pictures on his blog!!). Wayne's window to the world

Last week, I wrote something to my Dad, and this week it only seems fair to write something to the other person who was responsible for bringing me to life.
My mom Betty.

My mother is the most amazing woman, she had five chidren, My oldest brother Rip, then they
adopted my brothers Gregg and David (The twins), then my brother Mike and finally they got lucky and had me :o)~

Each one of us, has always had the love of my mom, if we are hurting she fixes it if she can. If we are scared she calms us, and if we are happy she smiles with us. Thats my mom.

My mother is as proud of each of her grandchildren as she is of all of us, she loves and respects each one of them and their individualism.

My mom is one of those people who will call you five hundred times a day and usually tell you the same thing at least four hundred of those phone calls, but you still answer the phone because as my ring tone says "Answer the phone... your MOMMAS calling you.. dont you want to talk to your momma.. its YOUR momma. Answer the phone.. your Momma's calling you.. shes gonna be madddddd" And yes usually half way across the house i do hear my kids scream "hey mom.. your MOMMAs calling you".. har har.

So today I give tribute without a doubt to the woman who I owe everything, my mom. :o)~ She's one of a kind and for that I am grateful. (I figured since i used Dads West Point photo i would use moms graduation photo)

What a great tribute to a wonderful woman, Betty really does sound amaizing and I love the idea about the ring tone I may use that one.

This is a great Tribute to Betty.
