Singing to mothers on Mothers’ Day

The world that we live in today has changed. Social distancing has replaced social functions.

KUALA LUMPUR: The world that we live in today has changed. Social distancing has replaced social functions. The COVID-19 pandemic has shut down the world we are so accustomed to. Everything has come to a grinding halt.

Surprisingly, amidst this chaotic scenario, we failed to notice that there is no shutting down for mothers. Nothing in their routine has come to a grinding halt. They continue to chug along at a strong, steady pace for their families. Beds being made, food being prepared, home being cleaned, clothes being washed, prayers being said, wishes being fulfilled, hugs, kisses and so on and so forth. The mothers’ list is endless, all embraced with unfettered love, no signs of slowing down, carrying on to ensure the children and family are safe and protected.

Hence, in recognition of the selfless sac rifices of a mother, the Hearts Melodious children’s choir of the Sacred Heart Church, through the guidance of the parish priest and  the children’s choir facilitators, got together to dedicate a tribute to all mothers. 

Movement control order and social distancing hurdles did little to dampen the spirit and zealousness of these children who immediately answered the call to do their part by coming together online and rendering a  sing along. They put their minds, hearts and souls into dedicating two meaningful songs, You Raise Me Up and Ibu, to all mothers out there.

Mothers, you raise us up to more than we can be and you are the queen of our hearts, captures pretty much what you mean to us. Thank you and we love you.

Meanwhile in Kuching, The Blessed Sacrament Church Morning Mass Choir once again came together to record a special song dedicated to all mothers, including our Mother Mary.

Some mothers were seen on social media commenting on how they missed receiving Holy Communion and the annual appreciation gifts given out at the Sunday Mother’s Day Mass.

Happy Mothers’ Day. God bless, stay home, stay safe.
