God makes the most wonderful people
Then lovingly shows them the way
To share all their gifts and their care
To bright the world day by day
They make such a difference to others
With a visit, a card or a call,
God chooses these wonderful people
To be blessings of all.
God has given you such a generous hart.
For care about others and for spreading
Happiness. Thank you so much for being
One of His wonderful people.
