I was brought up by a single mother,a family of 5 by then,with nothing to raise her children she decided to go back home and live with her mother, after a few months the elder sister's children started mistreating us my mum decided to leave with nothing in our names,,we started laying bricks for a place we can call home,we even started staying in an incomplete house with  no roof we wanted to survive so we go borrowing sauce pans,plates after using we return back power the owner it continued then my mum decided to join police with her at the training wing I was the one running the family as young as I was I had no option I skipped being  a child or even treated like one,when she  came back after 7months she started getting salary that means decent meals we were able to attend school then boom,my stepdad came in the picture would tell my mum lies about us mum would beat us ,then one day I over heard him telling my mum it's useless to take me school I prayed luckily I was bright the school was paying a half my fees.When time came to join higher learning my aunty promised to pay my tuition when I called to inform  her about the new development she told me its awrong number have called I ignored, called again explained myself she switched off after days she sent me a message telling me she is paying nephew tuition I should wait after they have finished then I joined my mum grew annoyed went to the bank applied for a loan then paid my tuition for all the two years,my main problem was when I finished with my stepdad against me I had no home,a place i called home i kept moving to people's places for holidays i got a job as acashier in the city hotel helping my mum pay for my siblings fees i realised i had no security i spoke with my boss who loved me so much she accepted i went and studied bakery and cookery course so that incase i wake up with no job i have where to start from,I was still homeless I really wanted a place to settle and call home I struggled for years and I saw my only option was to get married immediately we started staying together the guy had accompany the partner took money from the client and ran away,the client furious to recover his money reported to police my husband was arrested with the partner no where to seen we lost everything we couldn't even afford rent I moved back home pregnant my husband in jail,was very broke I bought two packets of baking flour would make doughnuts and sell was able to move for antenatal and also feed after five months he was released but he was completely broke,just watching from afar I even gave birth from the village, c section complicated everything what keeps me strong my angel is so adorable with the dad left with nothing to offer I decided to stand in strong and provide for her, i got a job where haven't been paid since I started working corona came and everything stopped, with the skill i have i bake small  but we are surviving I want to encourage single mothers out there no condition is permanent,you are masterpiece,my dream is to open up a bakery in my hometown and to be able to reach out to single mothers by teaching them what I know that's baking.

Hello God's masterpiece,
I can see the beauty of your heart shining through your story, how much you have endured in life but keep hope alive, your resilience to get an education and training, your love and commitment as a mum, and your compassion towards other women in the same situation.
I am glad that you can bake, and I pray that God opens a door so that your baking school will one day become a reality and lift other women too.
Sending as many blessings as your name, and sparkles to brighten u your day!
Stay safe, stay sparkly :)
Nini, in sisterhood.
