Good Morning!! Shelby and I were on a mission last night... paint the false ceiling that is suspended over the main dining room at the new location. We check out the scissor lift, learn how to drive it and jump on. "You drive " were Shelby words to me, "Nope, I will stand behind you and hang on" I said anxiously. We jump on and slowly make our way across the big open space. It takes us a while to get in place and then he starts raising us up, the higher we go the shakier it gets...oh mylanta me and heights are not really friends.... I start whining, totally occupied in my own misery and then I start feeling something wet land on me. My thoughts turn to Shelby's painting and I proceed to critique him.."Dude you are flicking paint all over me!".... I do believe he had enough of me..he turns around to me and proceeds to roll paint on my arm, as my mouth falls open, ready to start a war he calmly says, "Now you do not have to worry about me and worry about getting paint on you". Happy Beautiful Wednesday yall, throughout this crazy process, I have prayed daily for me to remain kind to those around me, for the stress not to get the best of me. In my life, I am so busy trying to be kind to others, I sometimes forget to extend that to those that love me with all their heart. I realized in an instance I had a choice to make...either laugh it off and get over it and enjoy this time with Shelby or I could be a bear and make everyone there miserable. Thankfully, I chose the first choice and we continued creating amazing memories. My actions are all about choices, everyday new information is flying at me, some good and some make me want to climb under a rock and wave the white flag...the situation may not change....but my actions can reflect how my heavenly father made me to be. Everyday there is an action and a reaction.....I want to be the girl that people say, "Wow she must be a child of God, by her actions." It is all about choices yall...let his light shine and your action reflect him.... and yes eventually I found Shelby's action to me pretty darn funny. May yall's day be full:)
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.
