Life is one hell of a ride, we live, but there will come a time for us to leave this world behind. We might not have known much about the late 22-year-old Nelli Tembe, but her sudden passing touched the nation.
Sadly, people always lose the people they love each and every day and that is just the unfortunate reality, this has to make us realize the value of life, the value of making memories.
This might sound cheesy right now, but there will always be a time when one will wish if only they had just slowed down a bit and appreciated family.
One thing about Nelli, it seems like she spent a lot of time with her family, maybe not as much time as she probably would have loved, but she did make those memories.
Memories make us who we are, you get to look back and reminisce about the touches, laughs and cries. Obviously, for some, this is just sobby and sensitive, but there is time for everything, there is time for happiness and there is time for pain.
And a lot of times, we start looking at what matters when we are going through pain.
Now, Nelli had dreams, she aspired to be a force to be reckoned with and she also had a family that was always on her side. There are pictures that tell a story, these are the few pictures that are on the internet, but they tell a glimpse of a special story.
Nelli has always had people who were there to hold her when she needed the care, there is a picture where she is with her big brother.
That is probably one special picture, even for the brother who is now left with the pictures and memories. There are other ones where she is with more of her family, looking at the pictures, it is really sad because she was so young.
However, we cannot question God’s will, this life is a journey, a journey that will eventually come to an end some day, cherish it.
