Welcome to TRIBUTE TUESDAY a chance to let that someone who has made a difference in your life feel special by paying them tribute.

This week my tribute is to Dianne Jackson A.K.A my mom.

My mom was born in 1943 and by her 16th year was working as a nurse
she was then married and gave birth to guess who?,, Me

here is a picture of my mom and the cats
who are also her children, as she calls them.

My mother is one of my personal heroes in so many ways.

When ever I was ill she would nurse me back to health
She would and does still always make sure I have clean clothes to wear.
and if I'm not dressed to her standard she will say "you look like a bag of s**t tied in the middle."

She has worked all her life from the age of 16 right to just 5 months ago when osteoarthritis prevented her from doing the job she loves which is nursing and looking after people.

now at the age of 66 she spend most of her time watching the history channel and complaining about the cats pinning her down on the chair and either cleaning her or biting her.

she still ventures out every day too the store and always complains about the prices and how when she was young how much cheaper it all was.

and she will attack me with her walking stick every opportunity she get In a joking way, well most of the time

My Mom is a caring woman who over the years has done so much for so many people and helped to save the lives of countless more.

I am proud to call her my mother

I know that every one says it at some point and I will now My mom really is a amazing woman in so many ways.

this Tribute is for you mom

I love you.
