"I don’t look like what I have been through. I used to hawk on the streets 18 years ago. I sold toffees, books, foodstuffs, etc. We [my family] could hardly afford three square meals a day because my dad was so ill and couldn’t move. Mum nursed and loved him unconditionally.
"I knew since then that I was born for the battles in my way. So I fought my way through. Years later, the people who bought from me so we could afford a meal. I have paid my dues️. My family eats anything, whenever and where ever. My puppies even have options to choose from. LORD AM GRATEFUL. THE ESSENCE OF MY PRAISE IS CENTERED ON YOUR GRACE. A FEW PEOPLE KNOW MY STORY BUT SOON I WILL TELL THE WORLD WHO I AM AND HOW I GOT HERE. DON’T GIVE UP. YOU CAN MAKE IT TOO."
