Just Us Two

My supervisor was aware that I was searching for a safe budget friendly place to call home and highly recommended Mrs. Robertson. From the outside we appeared to be an unlikely pair. I was fresh out of college in a new city. She was a spunky almost eighty year old that knew the area like the back of her hand.

Our age difference could have been the great divide that separated us but, it didn’t. Mrs. Robertson was surprisingly young at heart and I was sort of an old soul. We were a great match. And, it didn’t hurt that she was a fabulous cook and had completely missed her calling as a comedian. she cracked me up

Just about every evening when I came home from work, Mrs. Robertson had already whipped up some deliciousness for dinner. One day she made meatloaf. Now, I’ve had an on going love affair with food ....yes my Frank knows about it .... however, meatloaf and I never hit it off. But when I tasted Mrs. Robertson meatloaf patties, I was sold at first bite. For over a year, we shared, ate, laughed and did life together....just us two.

At least once a month when I'm mixing up the dish for dinner, I smile. I’m reminded that the Lord prompted Mrs. Robertson to not only open her home but, her heart. He caused our paths to do more than cross, they connected and intertwined. God gave me a friend that I would have never sought out at just the right time. Has God given you any sweet surprises lately? I would love for you to share.

I’ve provided the meat loaf patty recipe below. You'll notice that some of the measurements are not precise. That’s because Mrs. Robertson would add a little here and there until it was just right.

Feel free to leave a recipe in the comments that reminds you of a family member or friend that has a special place in your heart.
