Die before we die
In the wake of the sudden and tragic death of a young, beautiful, bright girl, beautiful tributes have flowed for her, describing what they love about her and the memories that they cherish. Inshallah these will be much appreciated by her family and friends for years to come.
It got me thinking though… The unfortunate reality is that we have so much that we love, appreciate and admire about people, but don’t necessary tell them so. Well, at least I don’t, not to the extent that I should anyway. When sharing these thoughts with my family, we decided to try something new. We decided to ‘die before we die’, where we choose a member of our family and each write the things we most appreciate and love about them, and the memories that we share. In other words, a tribute to them while they are alive.
Alhamdulillah, it’s proving to be a lovely experience for us all, and so I thought I would share it with you to maybe try… Inshallah, I pray it gets all of our families buzzing with love 🙂
