Life’s best Talisman

My Grandmother gave me a gift. 

“A good luck charm that will see you through life” She said.

“It will help people to like you, to trust you and to care about you.

It will open doors for you and it will make your path just that little bit easier.”

It is the best Talisman that anyone could have. Better than an amulet worn around the neck.

Better than a rabbits foot, that surely would have been better off on the rabbit.

My mother always said to me, “you have your grandmothers smile.” 

A smile is the most powerful talisman you can wear.

Wear it always and wear it well.

People are far too complicated to be able to describe in a few words so I am not even going to try.
