Susan sang a stirring song.

Stirring songs start a smile.

Smiles spread sunshine.

Sunshine sheds happiness.

Happiness happens with hope.

Hope has promise.

Promise promotes feelings.

Feelings forgo opinions.

Opinions open thoughts.

Thoughts tone a mood.

Moods make many emotions.

Every emotion has an effect.

Love for others is great medicine.

Love heals hurting hearts.

Love mends many friendships.

Forever families love each other.

Great gardens grow with love.

Faithful love is forever true.

Endless love lasts forever.

Let’s let love shine.
