I use the word reunited because seven years ago Tanya closed her soup kitchen.
And seven years ago I cried when I heard she was closing.
I felt ministered to every time I ate there.
Do you have anyone in your life that feeds you that well?
I needed to talk this out. I needed to hear "it's not you, it's me" but that never happened.
And I have carried a torch of sorts for her food ever since.
Today, Tanya met folks at the door like she had done many times before.
She said she remembered me...okay, I forgive her. :)
She knew my friend Jana.
Tanya's bread pudding with the caramel sauce is legendary.
(Don't turn up your nose at bread pudding, people. This will change your mind.)
Me and Tanya's Soup Kitchen.
From the look of the line out the door this noon, it appears we're not exclusive.
And in this relationship, that's a good thing.
