- Doris Ogada's late mum was not wealthy but she was a queen in her own right
- She was a strong woman who tried to construct a beautiful home for her family before she passed away
- Doris's mother managed to bring up a mud structure but sadly passed away after that
- Eleven years later, the determined daughter built a brick house in honour of her matriarch
Most African parents deserve an 'A' for effort.
They might not own huge mansions, a fleet of expensive cars or trendy clothes but one thing they always did was make sure their kids were happy.
Doris Ogada did not care about all the things money could buy. All she cared for was how much her mum bent over backwards to give her kids a comfortable life.
The Facebook user narrated in the Home Beautiful Facebook group how 11 years ago, her mother tried high and low to erect a house made of brick.
But all she could manage was a mud house. However, it was a beautiful haven to Doris because it was what her mother could afford.
Shortly after constructing the home, the netizen’s mum passed away. People always laughed at Doris’s family because they did not have a decent place to call home.
“We were called names because we did not have a good house. But our God is able and a miracle worker. Years later we were able to make it a better one," she wrote.
The lady said that finally, her family was able to construct a decent home in honour of their fallen matriarch. She also shared a few touching photos of the abode.
Briefly.co.za previously reported that SA was left in awe of beautifully designed furniture made from an old bathtub. Some people are so talented, they can find ways to turn old and broken things into beautiful brand-new creations.
A Twitter user recently took to Twitter to share with his followers how an old bathtub can be turned into beautiful and usable furniture. @IamMartyMarty shared a series of pictures of @AbChigz transforming the old and clearly ruined bathtub into a set of two chairs and a glass-top table.
In the pics, the man had cut the bath into three pieces, restored its colour and added some legs.
