I said to y'all 14 days ago this is what I do...I write & over the last 2 weeks I have been virtually silent with my words.... I was given a gift today that I will remember and cherish the rest of my life, my conversation with my daddy. He was released yesterday and was able to go home, 16 days after his surgery. The last few weeks have been extremely tough , honestly I felt my joy was gone and I was holding my breath. My words of fear, sadness & love were said to him with tears streaming down my cheeks. His tears matching mind he claimed it was all our Heavenly Father that he is here. He wanted me to tell all of you, "Thank y'all for your prayers " he felt them and our Heavenly Father heard them.... Yes a miracle has happened. Hundreds of y'all have come into the grill & asked about him and I thank you for your loving concern, kind words & prayers. Over the last few seeks I have written down so many journeys that amazing people have shared with me & I finally feel strong enough and have peace to share them with y'all over the next days & weeks. The thought of my hero healing and gaining strength daily is a feeling I honestly have no words for. Have a beautiful blessed Saturday y'all.... My heart is full.... — with Odis Sutterfield.
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.
