Never give up

She is a woman of Grace..

Life taught her alot

Mercy spoke for her 

It is me..

I flashed back on my life in the college and how it was so difficult to eat or even pay school fee.

I remember a period when my mother had to sell her cloths to pay our school fee and it could only pay for my elder sister while the others had to stay at home.

There were days we don't get to have dinner because there was no food. In Nigeria we have a particular food called GARI.. you take with only water, we always put alot of water in it so that it would swell up and 6 of us would be fighting over it just to feed. 

Today I. My mother has gone to meet the Lord. We are now helping people with our little means because we don't want people to suffer like us , my family try in our little way to look out for people in need around us, we try to visit orphanage and take the little we can afford with us.

I am telling someone don't wait till you have many before you share with someone in need , the time you have many ,those people in need  might be dead, start to share the little you have now!!! 

Look around you make someone happy. 

Thanks to world pulse , I am learning more.

Use what you have to make someone happy.

I do free french lesson for students, I encourage them never to give up because someone helped me tooo

I am called Madame connect because I always look out for teenager's and encourage them to be focused. 

Help someone today...

Hello Buky,
You know so personally what is possible when people live to be generous, from the life work of your mother, and what you carry forward. Your call for every one of us to look deeply at what we can each do, is a beautiful call for action. "Look around you make someone happy". You are an inspiration.

Wow! Thank you, 'Madame Connect' for all you do. French is a super-cool language that could take indigent students to greater heights. Thank you for being a role-model and mentor in your community. Many of our youths just need someone that they can relate with, who could hold their hands or shed some light across their paths.

You have such a touching personal story. Like most women, the good thing is that you don't look like what you've been through at all, so keep being strong! 'Happy that you have found World Pulse rewarding. I have too. :)

I agree that we should always make someone happy with whatever we have. Nothing is too small and we need not wait.

May God grant your Mum sweet repose -amen. She would be smiling at your service now. Please, keep writing.

I enjoy being a woman of grace as well. :)

Hugs,

E. J.

Hello, Madam Connect,

The hardships you overcome made you a generous woman today. That's true. We cannot wait to be rich before we can give.

I learn that generosity is giving out of our sustenance, not our surpluses.

Keep shining,dear sister. Thank you for inspiring us today!

Hello Buky,
Your example is a perfect demonstration of what you are encouraging us all here to do, to not wait until we have more in order to share, to give. It reminds me of the verse 'whoever is faithful with little will be faithful with much'. That is my prayer for you. To be entrusted with much more so that you can continue faithfully lifting up those in need around you.

Thank you, for leading by example.

Dear Buky,

Welcome to World Pulse and my deep condolences on the passing of your mother.
Your messeage of not waiting until we have much before sharing with others is extremely inspirational.

Each of us has something to give and to share with others.I am glad that you are giving so generously of your time and talent to teach other kids French without asking them for money.
I encourage you to keep up the good work, and to keep your light shining for it will reward immensely in the long run.
Making someone happy keeps you happy. More power to you.

than you
