"That neighbour will always be blessed; because she sowed into your mom's need, therefore the neighbour will reap a blessing... Sowing and reaping is a wonderful principle that works..."
"Wow, I just had goosebumps, I feel warm and cosy just reading the words it's all yours. God bless her soul."

Man saves money every month to buy groceries for parents: "An absolute angel"
Earlier, Briefly News reported that Melusi Sitshaluza took to Facebook's #ImStaying group to inspire the nation. Melusi has been saving R500 every month for this year and adding it to a gift card. He managed to save R6 000 and helped his parents out.
Knowing that December and January are stressful for his parents, he thought he would do something special for them.
Melusi purchased groceries that, he says, will last his parents two to three months.
