A few years ago, I was alone on Christmas Eve for the first time. I was newly divorced and it was my son's weekend with his Dad. My daughters, both in their early 20's, were spending time with friends. I had just changed churches and didn't really know anyone there very well yet, and most of my friends were married and spending time with their families.
I had ordered a Chick-fil-A Nuggets Tray f... read more >
Each year for the last 20 years or so, my Mom would buy Chick-fil-A Nuggets Trays to serve on Christmas Eve, when we all came home from church services, and more recently on Christmas Day with our traditional meal. She raised 10 children and now has us, plus 8 spouses and 28 grandchildren. We all looked forward to knowing there would be Chick-fil-A Nuggets waiting for us when we arrived at her hou... read more >
Yesterday was an emotionally exhausting day. I woke up at 4:30am to drive 5 hours for my college roommate's cancer surgery. We spent the day praying and waiting for news and finally in the evening we found out that the surgeons were able to remove all of the cancer and that it was contained. She was cancer-free! I left Durham around 6:30pm to make the 5 hour trek back home. Because I had been so n... read more >
My husband, CW4 Bobby Dennis, was deployed to Iraq in 2004/2005. The one thing he missed the most, food wise, was Chick-fil-A. When we talked to him he would always say that when he got home that Chick-fil-A was one of the first places he wanted to eat.
He was scheduled to come home for his two week leave in November of 2004 in the afternoon. We had arranged for a surprise welcome home party f... read more >
At the beginning of August of 2010, I found out I was pregnant. I wanted to surprise my husband so I asked him to meet me for lunch (at Chick-fil-A of course). This wasn't uncommon so he wasn't suspicious at all. I got three tests that came back positive and I took a picture of all three on my phone. As soon as we sat down for lunch, I sent him a txt with the picture in it. The picture shows... read more >
My baby girl, Joy, was on the floor one day just after we had picked up some Chick-fil-A. She was so excited about the bag of food that she managed to get up on all fours and start crawling toward the bag--for the first time! We laughed so hard that her first time crawling was because of Chick-fil-A. What can I say; the girl's got good taste. Moral of the story? If you are worried about your chil... read more >
On August 27, 2012 I was riding my road bike down Call Street. While crossing the intersection at chapel a car hit me. I flew across the hood and landed face first on the other side of the intersection. I was not wearing a helmet and probably was going about 20 miles. Obviously not a great situation for any person to be in, especially on the first day of classes. But while I was lying on the g... read more >
My dog became overcome from the heat on our walk to a gas station recently. I had run out of gas and had to walk with her versus leaving her on the bus. I could see signs that she was dehydrated as she was crying out of both eyes. I walked up to the drive-thru and asked for a cup of ice water and they gladly passed the cup out of the window. I sat down with her in the shaded wet grass for at least... read more >
