“I learned to give not because I have so much, but because I know how it feels to have nothing.”

Some years ago, we needed so much help and adjustments with our lifestyle. I had to stop schooling because my parents couldn’t afford my university fees anymore. I almost disconnected my communication with my college friends just because… It wasn’t an easy journey. I was only 21 then. That’s when I started working. My father needed medication. We had bills to pay. I had to send my brother to school. But you know what, I was so blessed to have met and been with officemates turned true friends, who were so supportive spending for my lunches almost every day. To date, we’re still good friends and see each other whenever. Thanks to my Aunt who is now in heaven, too, for the food that she had always given us…

So if someone in need happens to cross your path, always look back and be a blessing.
