Good Morning!! Last Friday, during lunch, I walk to the door to greet a guest. I did not know them, but I could tell the older women was battling something..... a sickness of some sort. I walked her and her adult son to a table for 8 people. "The rest of our party will be here in a little bit". I left them and continued my lunch duties. The rest of their family arrived, adults & young children, I assume her kids and grankids. They were having a festive time....everyone talking at once. I was walking through the faith room when their food arrived......one of the precious children said a prayer of thanks for their food..... with all 8 heads bowed the words spoken touched my heart, besides thanking our heavenly father for the food that was set in front of them.....the precious words... "Thank you for my memaw" was spoken from this precious child. Ya know, I dont know this families journey, but I do know they were celebrating each other.... their memaw was sick and they were lifting up thanks for her being there. This long weekend I found myself thanking our heavenly father for every little thing. Shelby and my B playing catch, listening to the radio with the window down, keeping my family safe.... rejoicing that one of my dear friends made it through surgery. We seem to focus on being thankful during the thanksgiving holiday when we should be thankful in every moment of our life. Happy Tuesday yall.... whether you and your family are battling great things or life seems to be smooth saling right now .... be thankful, watching this family on friday.... their life at that moment was not very easy and yet a child was offering up thanks. May your day be full of amazing blessings!!
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.
