Tuesday Tribute 7

Welcome to Week 7 of Tuesday Tributes!

Tuesday Tribute is brought to you by ME and my gal pal

Allison over at Tri & Finish.

We all have friends, family, co-workers or even the new friend you met via blog hopping that you genuinely care about and want to let them know.  You may have someone whom you’ve lost and never got the chance to tell how you felt.  Lets not let anymore time go by without letting those we care about know how we feel!

This coming weekend, incase you haven’t checked your calendar is MOTHER’S DAY!  So, what better time than to pay tribute to a Mother!!

On April 8th, 2005 I officially gained a Step Mom:  Kaye.  She is also known as Gammy if you have been keepin up with my previous posts.  IMG_9834  IMG_9876IMG_9875
I met Kaye a bit earlier than 05’ and she has always had a very warm heart and open arms for friendship.  ‘Step-mom’ is such a stickler of a name because you either get a good one or you don’t and I got lucky and got a GREAT ONE. 
Kaye has always been very supportive and understanding.  To step in the role of a step mother can’t be easy but she did it with grace and ease.  I look to her for her opinions, I love spending time with her.. she is someone I feel that is the closest to a Mom that I could have!  When I gave birth to Ryan, she was right there and stayed in town to help me for 2 weeks which was the best thing I could have asked for being a new Mom myself.  It was just nice to have someone listen and cry to as my hormones were out of whack!  She was amazing and I could see the love she had for my son and how excited she was once she came up with her ‘Grandparent nick name’:  GAMMY!  It was a perfect fit!
And then of course she was there when Reese was born, ready with open arms and I think she might even love Reese more than she loves me.  Just kidding.. I’m just trying to emphasize how being a grandparent to my children has been such a natural and loving response!
I adore and appreciate Kaye in so many ways.  She of course is a super wife and makes my Dad so happy and that fills my heart with joy!  She is one of my bestie’s and I trust her whole heartedly!  I am very thankful and lucky to have her in my life!! I hope this year is a GREAT Mother’s Day!! My Step Brother Jason is back from Afghanistan and everyone is home safe and sound!! Couldn’t ask for a better one!
