A Few Months to Go

Hi everyone

I wanted to write this post as we are now in September. We have only a few more months till Christmas. If you are in the States you have Thanksgiving first and then Christmas.

I wanted to remind you that no matter where you are in the world during these public holidays we have men and women in Uniform who will be working.

They dont do what everyone else does and says “See ya in the new year”. Instead of being with family and friends they are making sure that you and I are able to enjoy our holidays in safety. It is also not just them it is there families as well who serve. They do it proudly.

So when we start the run up to the holidays may I ask that you all think of someway in which you can thank someone in uniform on Christmas Eve, New Years Eve, Thanksgiving or any other public holiday.

Even if you just say on social media #ThankYouForYourService will mean the world to people.

Thanks for reading.

Prayer for Uniformed Services in Sri Lanka

Dear Lord

I ask that you look over the Sri Lankan Police, Fire Service, Military, Doctors, and Nurses as they deal with the fallout from the explosions that have happened. Lord, you know that they are facing some seriously horrific images and they will not be able to save everyone. Lord you know they put on their uniforms so those who cant serve are kept safe and well.

Lord, I ask you to bring them peace in the coming days. Let them know that they are loved and respected for all that they do for others. Be with the survivors who are there and give them peace.

In your name I pray.

Amen

Personal Thank You

Being Autistic is something I am still learning about. I have triggers and sometimes I know how to deal with them and sometimes I don’t. My biggest one at the moment is one particular tube station in London. It is HUGE for me. There are so many different escalators just to get off the platform that I get overwhelmed and get lost. I have had to use this station 3 times in the last few weeks and every time I get lost in a new way :S

But my thank you goes out to the Metropolitan Police and the City of London Police as I don’t know which police officers I met or which one they were from. Every time I have gotten overwhelmed and lost I always seem to manage to find me a Police officer with a service dog. The two-legged officer gives me directions that I can understand and the four-legged officer gives me love and affection in a lick of letting me pet them that I feel able to get off of the ledge of full meltdown and find my way to where I need to go.

So to all of the two legged and four legged officers in the Metropolitan Police and City of London Police #ThankYouForYourService and thank you for helping this Autistic Woman out. Your officers won’t of known I was Autistic, but it made a BIG impression on me and I am super thankful for that as it helped me avoid a meltdown which would have made me feel very embarrassed when it passed.

Thank You is only two words

Thank You is only two words that dont take much effort to say and yet, those who wear a uniform rarely hear it from people. Why is that?

These are people who put their lives on the line for us on a regular basis and yet we can not say thank you to them for doing so. This to me is something that is unacceptable.

So to all those in uniform I say #ThankYou as well as #ThankYouForYourService

People in uniform

There are some people out there who believe this, I am not one of them. They believe that just because a man or woman signs up to serve their country, city or community in uniform that they should be accepting the fact that they may get abused or attacked in the course of their duties. This is something that is not the case. This is something that I firmly disagree with strongly. The only exception I find to this is when a military person who goes into war. Death and danger is something that is part of what you see.

If you see a paramedic and get punched in the face when you are trying to help someone that you have not signed up for. The same goes for every other member of the uniformed services. Show some respect the next time you see someone in uniform and say #Thankyouforyourservice.

2019: Message to our uniformed services

To all those across the globe who are going to be working on New Year’s Eve may I wish you a very safe and uneventful time and that 2019 brings you lots of things that you love and enjoy. Lastly, I would like to say #ThankYouForYourService
