Good Morning!! On Tuesday Shelby and I ran out of the grill at 2:15.....we got all of the staff on the same page as far as closing down and hit the road to Childress.....what could happen we were closed right? Wednesday morning came really quickly for these tired traveled parents...... when we arrive at the grill I am hit with the issues that happened on Tuesday after I left.... I became very angry and frustrated and went straight to the kitchen, instead of asking their side I laid into them...all 5 of the guys looked at me and listened, never saying a word or defending themselves(they know I dislike excuses)..... later I hear different stories floating through the grill. I had made a mistake and I needed to make it right...these guys were not totally the only ones at fault... Happy Beautiful Thursday yall....when you realize you have treated someone wrong what do you do? Over the last 3 months I have felt great pressure to get everything right, more pressure than I knew could possibly exist and shamefully there have been days that the pressure boils up and I become the worst version of myself but what I am learning is how to ask for forgiveness from those around me...... "I am sorry, I was wrong" has become a phrase I am learning ALL about. It is very humbling and hard to go to someone and say this phrase but as a child of God I need my actions to reflect his love. We are all held accountable for our actions and regardless of the pressure and stress in our lives we still need to treat others with kindness. I am a huge work in progress and I am thankful that those around me accept my apologies.....if you do not say "I am sorry, I was wrong" it is hard to move forward in any relationship whether it be personal or business. Is there someone today you need to say I am sorry too? all you can do is put it out there and see what happens. I went to these guys and told them "I was wrong, I should not have jumped in without knowing the full story.... I am sorry"...this opened up a line of communication for them to talk of the incident. Gosh life is such a beautiful journey and we can so easily mess up the amazing blessings the Lord has given us......I want to be better and do better and being humble enough to admit when I am wrong eases a huge burden from my heart......giving an apology can be life changing 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.
