10th May 2020 is Mother’s Day.

 

Some may wonder, “How can we celebrate when we are unable to visit or meet?”  The idiom, “It’s the thought that counts”, holds true in this time of “circuit breaker”. It may not be what we used to do, Yet we can express our love and thanks to our mothers in other ways - a video call, an e-card, a bouquet of flowers &/or gift, her favorite food delivered to the home, etc. 

 

I believe that, during this period, it is very important to show love to the people close to us including parents, spouse, children, siblings, friends and neighbors. The “Stay Home” instruction isolates people from the social interaction that they need. The benefits of expressing love is that it works both ways. When you show love and care, you will receive love and care. Practise what 1 Thessalonians 5:11, “Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.”

 

As you continue to stay home in May (if you live in Singapore), I encourage you to keep in contact with people. Technology has enabled us to do much more than a phone call (that’s good too). It is also a good time to learn new technology if you are unfamiliar. May this time be a time to treasure our loved ones and a time of learning!

 

I like to end with the quote from the Bible.

“A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies ... Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her.”

- Proverbs 31:10, 28

 

Happy Mother’s Day!
