An extension of myself and the reason for my existence

Today’s PromptAmong the people you’ve known for a long time, who is the person who’s changed the most over the years? Was the change for the better?

My lifetime Valentine

Almost a decade ago, I have met the most beautiful, engaging, challenging, intellectually stimulating, yet slightly childish woman and my life has never been the same. We were teens when we met. Both childish, yet full of drive and ambition. We laughed, ate, cried, struggled, then succeeded. Our secret? Love, understanding and best of all, mature and sensitive communication. Nothing is left unsaid but nothing is left unresolved. Neither of us are perfect and we both know it. Still, we manage to make one another better.

My partner is my rock. She is always the one who gives me advice, listens without judging, and the one who can comfort me. Knowing that she will always be right beside me makes everything easier. Waking up in the morning and seeing her face makes me realise that everything is alright. Looking at her before I go to sleep assures me that I am loved and wanted. Having the privilege of making her smile and loving her for the rest our lives has been the best  gift the universe has ever given me.

She has, and continues to, make me a better person.

Thanksfor the prompt, DP!

An All-You-Can-Eat-For-Free Restaurant

Today’s Daily PromptYou just inherited a dilapidated, crumbling-down grand mansion in the countryside. Assuming money is no issue, what do you do with it?

Imagine a restaurant exclusive to people who cannot afford to eat. A place where gourmet food is served for free. Not just a soup kitchen – money is not an issue, remember? This is what I want to do with a run-down grand mansion. Food will be cooked by trained and well-mannered chefs, who, along with the servers, in turn will train those who have no jobs.

There may be a shortage in money in the world, but I do not think that there is a shortage of good, well-meaning people who are willing to help the less fortunate.
