What's a soulmate? ~ MaNan
"Dad, what's a soulmate?" My daughter Mia asked me, as I turned towards her.
"A soulmate...," I pretended to think, "...is someone like a best friend, but so much more-- that one person in the world who knows you better than anyone else. It's someone who might not always be there with you, but will always inspire you to be a better person, a better version of you; someone whom you would share a blanket with even on the coldest nights; someone who knows you for what you are, not what you pretend to be," I sit by her, and tuck the loose strands of her hair behind her ear.
Her lips part and then break out into a smile that lightens my day. "So, was mom your soulmate?"
I stare back, and then pull a little soft smile, "Maybe, who knows?"
