God bless this little flower shop and all that lies within.
May Fortune and Prosperity be yours as you begin
at last to live the dream you kept alive inside your heart.
Good friends are here to help you, Sue,
before you even start.
Here's to hoping sunny days
will find you happy and content,
and knowing all along
that when designs of yours are sent,
That people notice what you do,
in your creative way, the part you play,
no matter small, to brighten someone's day.
I hope the years are long,
your sign may hang above the door,
and blessings fall around you
much like cuttings on the floor.
Please understand I think that what you do is really art.
I am wishing you Success, today and always, in my heart.
