Good Morning!! Wow what a crazy, scary Tuesday I had....emotional roller coaster. I talked last week about having my yearly mammogram. The results came back with some questions...."please come back in more evaluation needed"...that is what my letter said. On Monday I called to make another appointment.Yesterday came and I was anxious...sick to my stomach. I drove down 19th street with k-love playing on the radio and a heart of prayer. They ushered my in and showed me the concern a little white dot on that black and white screen. I wanted to fall to me knees....this is how Donna, Jackie....my mom felt. Tears began and they said lets get busy.... after more pictures and waiting.....they came back and said "your good see ya in a year" and that was it. I go to my car and sat and cried for all of those women that there was not good. I was thankful...really thankful, for the first time in a long time I looked at things differently. Leaving work yesterday I had a lot to do and Shelby needed B to help him.... and of course he was no where to be found. We called for hours and the longer we could not find him the more panic I was becoming, I began calling friends... feeling more helpless every minute, in the middle of all of this I receive word that the building that this beautiful grill sits in has been sold....it will be a parking lot. Ironically this news would usually have made me a mess but after the health scare and me not being able to find my B it was the last thing that matter. The evening settle with all of my family safe, sound & healthy...B in a little trouble. Happy Beautiful Wednesday yall.... I truly believe we receive days like these to keep this precious life we have been given in absolute perspective. I woke with a heart of praise.....he knows my next step and having another beautiful day.... is an absolute gift:) Give your thanks and praise yall!!
I opened the Cast Iron Grill in October 2007. Lots of changes have happened in the last 5 1/2 years. The CIG started with 55 seats in an office building located at 18th and K. After five years, we were bursting at the seams with now 167 seats, and 24 wonderful co-workers working on top of eachother to make it happen. 2012 the Lord chose a different journey for the CIG. We relocated the CIG and opened our doors on January 2nd, 2013, just four blocks away from the old location! It has changed my world completely! All of these stories are the happenings of the people and the joy and celebration that make the CIG what it is.
