Brenda is so skilled with the ability to design fantastic art from broken pieces. She often breaks treasured China ware to use the scraps in pendants. If you would like to develop that talent you might start here with paper plates. See where you end up. Perhaps you can make something as charming as this dinner setting.
Mentors, mothers, and ministers have a heart to mend hearts and minds. Strength and beauty often start with broken pieces. Brenda can do that, too. She can also point you to a Man who can.
I am writing this with my niece, Brenda, in mind. She is in mothering mode where she sees the need. I love you, Bren.

About oneta hayes
Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...
Yes, people with the ability to mend and heal tend to be peaceful and approachable persons.
You got that right. Thanks.
“Brenda is so skilled with the ability to design fantastic art from broken pieces” to “Mentors, mothers, and ministers have a heart to mend hearts and minds. Strength and beauty often start with broken pieces. Brenda can do that, too.” Brenda sounds like a wonderful person. Thanks for writing this in her honor.
Brenda has a couple granddaughters who have been in and out of her life based on their home situation. She helped as she could to provide stability for them.
My old mentor called people like Brenda “Jesus with skin.” She was one of them herself. Heartwarming tribute, Oneta.
Beautiful. And Jesus is indeed the Man who can heal broken hearts and minds.
A sweet and charming write. People do make a difference. 🙂
Oh, I love this for a number of reasons. For one thing, your niece has my name (haha) and my family also call me Bren.
