Good Morning!! The CIG crew receives a blessing everyday..... no matter the turmoil, sadness, fear or anger that we are experiencing in our personal life we get a reprieve everyday. We become so busy and focused on the hundred's of people coming in that our heartache takes a back burner for a few hours, of course it comes rushing back to mind and soul after the crazyness is over but it is an absolute gift that I am thankful for, so many people do not get this everyday and the crew here does. I have had so many messages regarding my Sam, I am. The loss of his precious daughter has been extremely tough. The messages of prayer and how he is doing has been passed on to him.....I have not really sat down with him since he has returned from his leave, I do not want to upset him and have him talk about all that is going on. This morning I asked him to come up to my office to visit....immediately he says "Am I already in trouble, it is only 5:00!!" We both laugh at my smart mouth reply and then the talking starts..... "How ya doin Sam?"...He talks of how hard it has been....not sleeping is really tough.....but ya know Teresa I am so blessed and that is what I am focusing on, relying on my Faith because HE will carry me through, everyday I am remembering my what my grandmother use to say, "If the Lord does not do one more thing for me....he has already done enough to last my life." Happy Beautiful Tuesday yall....what a beautiful statement that we all can relate to. Yes....all of my blessing and gifts from HIM are enough to last a lifetime. Continue to pray for my Sam and his journey......his words of thankfulness touched my heart....."Teresa it is such a blessing to work and during the rush I get to escape my pain and heartach, even if it is for a short while, I am so ready for joy to return and I know with HIS healing and comfort and perfect peace it will." We all have received more than we deserve.....HIS love alone is enough...AMEN!!
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.
