Good Morning!! Yesterday morning I had yet another appointment that took me away from my favorite place.....the CIG. I called in a few times to check with Alysha to make sure all was good. I blow back in here at 10:00, and immediatly Sam starts in on me(side note....he acts like one of my children) I proceed to tell him very loudly and animated that Jesus hears how he is acting. As we are laughing and carrying on Lacy steps into the kitchen and says table 2 really wants to meet you....oh mylanta as I am being loud someone is listening to everything I say and waiting on me. I step to their table and I immediatly say..."You know when I am here....it becomes very loud".As they introduce themselves I notice cards propped on their table.... "Is it yalls anniversary?" 32 years today was their answer. I was giddy for them....they travel in their RV around the country....the husband googled unique restaurants and the CIG website popped up .....he began reading all of my stories....he told is beautiful wife they were going somewhere special, my heart was smiling. I sat down with them as they told me of their journey and they listened intently to my journey. They are christians, two adult children with precious grandbabies. She and I had a kinship... we were both stay-at-home moms ,we laughed over each other stories. My time spent with them I will always remember. Happy Beautiful Friday yall.... I am so blessed that the Lord allows me to be able to share in others journey. I told them their breakfast was on me, of course they argued.... My emphatic reply "Anniversary's are always on me its an honor and blessing when couples choose the CIG for their special day". They then pull out cash and say "please allows us to help pay for the less fortunate u feed" and there it is yall, they were thinking of others even as they were being given a gift. This precious couple made a difference in my day. We are all so busy but if you take a little time to listen to others...WOW amazing things happen to your heart. Have a blessed day yall. Take some time today yall to really listen to others it is amazing what a gift it is
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.
