She only woke up one morning, an amputee pure water hawker on the streets of Lagos, little did she know that a divine transformation was going to take place in her life. If God sets you path for his blessing nothing can hinder it from coming to reality. After her story went viral over a picture that was posted online, I became to ask myself what if she had given up and stop her business long ago or she had chosen not to go out on that very day, well it is all story now.
The important story now is that from a broke amputee pure water hawker, Mary Daniel is now a millionaire celebrating her 27th birthday today. Indeed what God cannot do truly does not exist. I believe she couldn't have imagined her transformation in such a short period of time. In a matter of few days, Mary Daniel who suffered for long became over 14 million naira rich. Her story and her resilient touched many Nigerians and even an International organization that played a role in her transformation.
In case you didn't hear about her story, Mary Daniel became famous and favoured recently after a picture of the young lady being an amputee was spotted hawking pure water on the streets of Lagos state, her picture soon went viral and captured the interest of many Nigerians including the wealthy, this was when the young lady was set apart for her transformation. In no space of time, she became a celebrity and many people sorted her out for monetary favour and eventually she accumulated over 14 million naira from generous donations.
I was particularly drawn to what was written on the shirt of Mary Daniel which reads "No Pain, No Gain". One can only but imagine the kind of pain it will take a person who only had one leg to hawk pure water under the scorching sun of Lagos state every single day. This is the story of the lady who hails from Kogi state, but I learnt from her story that suffering may indeed last for the night but joy cometh in the morning.
Blessings indeed transforms and make a person beautiful, look her previous pictures and the pictures she shared on birthday. April, 2021, is a month and year she certainly won't forget in the history of her life. The story of her sudden transformation is one she would live to tell her children and her great grand children. As humans there are events in our life we can never forget till we die, this event sometimes is either good or bad. For Mary Daniel it is indeed the good.
The story of the beautiful young lady has taught me many lesson, the lesson of resilient, never give up spirit, determination, encouragement, focus and to always know that as long as God continue to live my blessing could just be close without me knowing it. Happy 27th birthday to Mary Daniel. May her oil never run dry.
