There are so many out there who are doing it “for them” right now in such a different context than it’s ever been done before.  I was exposed to this song by The Call by a great friend, Wes, in 1990. I’ve found it to be a good wakeup call and something to rouse my from own self-centeredness and concerns at various times since then.  

 

Some of the lyrics that speak to me differently right now include:

 

Here’s to the teachers in the crowded rooms (oh, how educators are longing to see their kids in classrooms and hallways again….)

Here’s to the workers in the fields….Here’s to the driver’s at the wheel (what would we do without those in the fields getting the produce that truckers bring to our stores where shelves are still be stocked and cashiers are still allowing us to get what we need?)

Here’s to the doctors and their healing work/Here’s to the loved ones in their care (for all the medical professionals from doctors to nurses to respiratory therapists and physical and occupational and speech therapists and even mental health workers who are still finding a way to serve others while challenges mount as well as those in hospitals or self-quarantine that are cut off from their loved ones and support systems)

Here’s to you my little loves with blessings from above

Let the day begin

Here’s to you my little loves with blessings from above

Now let the day begin, let the day begin, let the day start

This is a YouTube video that says it’s the Official Music video from 1990 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=to2KasivROc

Here’s another version I found on YouTube with images that tell the story of the lyrics https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8t5Zmet3x2k

Here’s a link to the band’s official webpage if you want to hear more from The Call https://www.the-call-band.com

I don’t own the rights to the music or any images but I do own the encouragement this song brings as well as the inspiration I get to continue doing it for them and being grateful for others that are doing it for them through these tough times.  Thank you seems so inadequate, but thank you nonetheless.
