Poem from Blodwen Jones who has written a book of poems called MOONSTRUCK.
On Monday 17th August, this amazing lady will be 80 years young!
In my eyes, there is absolutely no way her praises can sung
enough to do her justice. How many people has she cared for over the years?
I truly wouldn’t want to hazard a guess – it would bring me to tears.
(Tears of respect for a selfless woman who truly cares.)
To tell you the truth, I don’t know her well, but I know enough to be able to say,
that she is an inspiration to myself and others on the IR at the end of the day.
I have never heard her complain once. In fact, the opposite is true –
and she really is a fount of wisdom for people like myself and you.
We need more people like Brenda, to make the world a better place.
She could be an inspiration for all of the whole of the human race.
HAVE A VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY BRENDA.
Not all Super hero’s wear capes, well except for this one. Brenda is that someone I have known for many years and it is her birthday today.
She has been there fighting that hard fight to get carers recognized and identified. Brenda has been through that difficult carer story and understands how horrible that carer journey can be.
She has been a member of many groups both carer and service user and we all hope she continues to contribute to the expert by experience cause.
Happy Birthday Brenda from
