A long-ago gift
I hadn’t thought of this charm since I-can’t-remember-when. It was a gift I received long ago….
I remember when you gave it to me. I didn’t know what it was but thought anything called an evil eye was a strange gift. You explained that it was to protect me and keep me safe, especially when you couldn’t be with me.
So, does it work?
Good question. I’m still here and pretty much in one piece…so, yes?
Looking at the charm brings back wonderful memories and makes me smile. Someone special wanted me to keep this gift close, always, and to stay safe and well in this great big beautiful world. So, yes, it definitely works.
