Good Morning!! A few days ago we received a phone call for a room reservation, it was for breakfast. No company name was given, we were not sure who was coming. At the appointed time they started arriving. Obviously not a business, but a family. My co-worker went back to greet them and take their drink orders. We usually have big group family breakfast for 2 reasons..... someone they loved has passed or someone they love is in court, neither of these occasions very happy. As my co-worker made her way back to the front, I ask "Do you know why they are here?" she did not and proceeded to take care of them. They were loud, festive, excited....they were celebrating!! Ya know how most families look alike? well they were no exception, all dark hair with beautiful light brown skin, instanly you could see they were related, at the center of the room was a fair skin blond hair little boy, they were celebrating this precious boy. "This morning was adoption day" those were the words said. My co-worker came to me with tears in her eyes as she told me this great news. I too had tears in my eyes, I was so giddy for this precious child of God, he was receiving a family that was in full force celebrating him into their family. Happy Beautiful Friday yall!!! I dont know this beautiful blond haired boys story but I do know he is getting an amazing chance to have a family love him.....we all want that, no blood relation is needed to become a family. My cup runneth over with family......some look like me but many do not and we know none act like me(pure crazy)..... but I celebrate each one of them, just like this family was doing. Celebrate your family yall they are precious and priceless... our heavenly father celebrates with his "family" daily.
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.
