Good Morning!!Wow unbelievable week at the CIG....Every afternoon when we leave this current location we head straight to the new place and work. It has been exhausting and exhilarating and my heart has been full of every emotion...4 of my girls have gone to help in the afternoons... 2 of them with little ones have helped until it was time to start their main job, raising kids. My precious regulars have showed up to paint, clean, move stuff and have offered great friendship and support. This week some of my girls have received amazing blessing's from these great regulars. One of them comes to work in tears yesterday morning, her dog had opened the kennel door and tore her house up.....her brand new cowboy boots were among the things destroyed. These boots were an early christmas present so she could break them in for the new location....boots required uniform at the new place. Tears running down her face.... I tell her it is ok.... about an hour later a regular that comes in for breakfast called me out to the hallway and ask "Could you please give this to _____ I heard about the boots....maybe this will help" I look down at in her hand and there was a large bill folded up. Tears well up in my eyes as I tell her "Thank you" and hug her. I can not describe my precious co-workers reaction, she started crying and said I have never experienced this sort of kindness....This sort of thing has happened all week, funny we set out everyday to make a diference in 1 person's life, but these amazing people are making a difference in ours. I received a gift yesterday, the most BEAUTIFUl cross I have ever seen, the words on the back, Matthew 6:34. The most perfect verse for me right now, in fact I read it when I walked into my office this morning . Happy Beautiful Friday....the girls and I have been overwhelmed with kindness this week. We are ending it with a bang....PIE contest today and I have 7 regulars that are taking time out of their busy day to come and find the perfect winner. Thanks yall! Have a fabulous friday!
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.
