There is so much kindness in the world at present than ever before.
My hope is that this will continue even when this is over. Thank you to all showing kindness in small and big ways.
I am so grateful to those who have personally shown me kindness at this time. It is said, that in times of crises, to look for the helpers. Blessings to you always.

Missing my hugs

Happy Mother’s Day from us. ... See MoreSee Less
Today we celebrate all those amazing mothers and all those who perform the role of a mother.
So many mothers are having to cope with so much at the moment, yet there is so much positivity and encouragement for each other.
Going out or meeting up may not be an option but there are other ways to celebrate and show your appreciation.
Do spare a thought and send hugs to others who may find this day difficult for various reasons.
Did you know that mother's day always falls on the fourth Sunday in lent in the United Kingdom, Ireland and Nigeria?
It was originally seen as a time people would return to their mother church for a special service.
Mothering Sunday began in the 16th Century as a religious event.
Traditionally it was a day domestic servants were given the day off to visit their families and their mother Church.
However you spend the day, I hope it is happy and filled with good memories.

Posted @withregram • @sholaalabs If there’s a high school 2020 leaver in your life, give them a hug.
To them, the cancellation of school is not a holiday. It’s wasted time they don’t get to spend with their friends the last few months before they finish high school.
They’re anxious, realising they may never be able to walk the halls for the last time or attend their prom. They’re sad hearing their prom they’ve been waiting on all year has a chance of being cancelled. The last day of high school is now today and many of their friends won’t be in... a day that they have been planning for.
They’re sad that the sports seasons, events and concerts that they’ve practised and prepared for, for so many years, may have come to an end before they’ve had the chance to take the field, court, or stage one last time.
They don’t know how or what they will be assessed on as their GCSE’s are cancelled - everything they have been working hard on for many years and that they know is important for the next phase of their life. Show them support and love them during these hard times. #classof2020

We all need to remember that after the storm comes a rainbow and calm.
Yes there is significant disruption and inconvenience to all our daily lives, we must appreciate the effort being made to keep us safe.
When this is over, most people will be able to carry on with their normal lives but for others life might not be the same again.
In the spirit of togetherness, can we spread kindness, love and compassion to one another.
It is important to support each other however we can.
Human kindness and positivity can really make a huge difference in these difficult times.
Stay safe and look for the positives in each day.

Did you know 16th-22nd March is introverts week? Introverts week was founded by Matthew Pollard, an author. He founded introverts week to encourage introverts not to be ashamed of who they are and to teach them how they can be successful in their personal and professional life.
Society will have us believe that only extroverts can be successful.
I beg to disagree because introverts can and do achieve amazing success in life too.
An introvert might be shy, reserved, appear snobbish, quiet, perhaps even seen as antisocial. This is because they often prefer to spend time alone rather than being in the company of other people.
Introverts can be quite good and loyal friends as they prefer quality over quantity.
Introverts are often careful with their words and are good at listening.
An introvert is often happy in their own company and socialising is not always high on their agenda.
Do you have any friends you would consider introverts?
Here are some famous introverts:
J.k.Rowling, Bill Gates, Steven Spielberg, Rosa Parks, Audrey Hepburn, Warren Buffet, Michael Jordan and Mark Zuckerberg.
I am very proud to be in such esteemed company.

Shop floor staff are under alot of pressure having to cope with difficult situations under current circumstances, including fights.
If products you want are not available, speaking rudely to staff is not going to help.
May I ask for #civility and #Respect towards them and other shoppers, a smile, eye contact, a calm demeanor will be good. Perhaps even a word of encouragement.
Be sensitive and patient especially where queues are long, have your card or money ready to pay at the checkout.
Avoid phone calls or using your phone when at the checkout, treat staff and those around you with courtesy. A little thought for others will go a long way.
Treat others the way you want to be treated.

If you walk into a Store/shop and the counters are empty, dont bother to ask, they are not in a position to conjure up their Magic wands for it to materialize. Common sense prevails.
