Nothing beats the feeling of gifting your parents especially if you grew up with literally nothing.
This was the case of a Kenyan woman, Tabs Nims, who, together with her siblings built a luxurious three-bedroom house for their elderly mother.
Taking to Facebook on Sunday, December 12, Nims shared photos of the new magnificent house they had constructed and the mud-walled grass-thatched hut in which they initially lived.

When she turned six years, the lady said her parents were blessed to build a two-bedroom mud house but this time with iron sheets. She said they turned their small hut into a kitchen.
Ten years ago, she said they were able to remodel the two-bedroom mud house to a semi-permanent one.
Three bedroom house
Coming from a large family, Nims said she and her brother, Njosh Njenga, decided that the two-bedroom house was no longer enough to accommodate them.
Also, she said they resolved to build another bigger house as their sweet mother was ageing and needed a nice bathroom, not a latrine.
The house has three bedrooms, a spacious kitchen, living room and dining room, two bathrooms, storage/pantry room, a laundry room and a car garage.
"I thank God because he has faithfully walked with us step by step, our hut many years ago is not in existence. It has been a journey but our God who said will fulfil all our Heart desires has done it," said Nims.
"Our past and humble upbringing should never determine our present and never let anyone dim your light. Chase that dream, Ignore the haters, trust the process and let God guard your steps," she added.
