Song of Guanyi
Guanyi is full of love, it cares about our feeling.
It treats us like friends and family, and it helps us kindly,
Medical team’s always there, and care is no stopping.
We have wonderful time, we settle down our mind.
Life is happy indeed, it gives us a peaceful thinking.
Afterwards, everyone moved to the hall and sang “We Toast” and “Ode to Joy” together, using their most sincere voice to celebrate the anniversary.
The reverberation of the song was still there, and the anniversary cake was slowly coming. The jumping candlelight signified a new beginning. Here, we are family, sharing the trifle of everyday, and also savoring the sweetness of life.
Everyone came to the back garden in a laugh. They released a small turtle in the small pool. “Health and longevity” is the best wish for them.
Then, everyone went back to the restaurant and planted a small plant, “Happy and Carefree” is the most beautiful expectation of life.
