Good Morning!!.....forty four years of my beautiful life have gone by me. I have lived and loved many moments and I have grieved and cried over moments that have literally taken my breath away....I have never wanted life to stand still until now.... and I feel so petty and self centered even thinking that way..... My life is changing every second and I feel as if I am not prepared for what is to come...my role and favorite thing of being a mom is changing... Yesterday I am reading my newsfeed on fb and I come across a status that was heartbreaking. One of my precious friends has been fighting cancer for about 3 years.... A great fight she has given, when Shelby's friend was diagnosed and going down hill this friend of mine reached out to him, one warrior to another , to offer hope, comfort and understanding ...she was selfless in her love, words and actions. Happy beautiful Tuesday y'all , the words from my friend......there is not much time and nothing else to do for the cancer...weeks maybe a few months.....Shelby and I where driving around the lake when I read this, tears formed and my heart broke.... My first thought ...... Wouldn't it be awesome if her life could stand still ....that time and this horrible disease would not take her..... She talked that she felt bad for her kids and her husband , their life will change forever ..... I ask for prayers for my precious friend Darla & her family. A few weeks ago Shelby and I saw the movie "God's Not Dead" and the quote that was constantly in the movie " God is good ALL the time & all the time God is good" Amen....our God has a great plan for all of us and if I spend to much time wanting this time in my life to stand still I am not allowing his plan for my life to unfold and I am being selfish..... My sweet Darla, I love you .... You are teaching those around you grace and courage and you have shown God is good all the time and all the time God is good.... Bask in the joy of this beautiful day and the changing seasons in our lives!!
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.
