When I was going to college in the hills of Kentucky at a little Christian college called Asbury College about 15 miles south of Lexington. I was so poor and had to borrow and loan just to afford tuition, room and board. That's ok, because I got a good solid liberal arts education which rooted me for the rest of my life.
However, once in a while, the guys from my dormitory would want to get aw... read more >
After 11 years without seeing each other and a long trip from Germany to Georgia, we finally got together. Grandma, who lives in the beautiful Island of Puerto Rico, was coming too, but she didn’t know she was going to see her granddaughter and finally meet her grandson.
All family members, eight in total, arrived the same night. My husband picked up our family from Germany and I did the same wit... read more >
My friends and I have been participating in Cow Appreciation Day for the last six years. This year, by far, will forever be the most memorable. In addition to the annual Chick-fil-A holiday, July 13, 2012 was also my wedding day. Cow Appreciation Day couldn't have been timelier!
My bridesmaid’s family, close friends and I spent the morning "costuming" together. We made name tags that read "Bryde... read more >
Working in a hospital, I am extremely used to our customers being upset with the care, being frightened over their diagnosis, and basically hating the lack of control they feel when we put them in a gown and tell them they can't do anything without calling a nurse.
Developing good customer service skills in an environment where everything we do is intrusive, painful or inconvenient, is a challe... read more >
Last Friday my sister-in-law and I decided to take our children out for lunch. Between us we had eight children under eight years old. Yes, we're insane; but desperate to get out of the house. We decided to go to Chick-fil-A because they have an indoor playground and it was bloody hot outside. As we pulled up I realized it was PACKED! Who wants to take eight kids into that? We decided to stay s... read more >
I picked up my son, 2nd Lt. Matthew O., the day after he completed Army Ranger School. If you don't know how grueling this training is please take a moment to read just how incredibly difficult this training program is. Less than 50% of soldiers who begin this training EVER graduate, only 15% of soldiers graduate after passing all three phases without being recycled. It is 61 days of pure hell, ex... read more >
Growing up in Georgia, Chick-fil-A has always been a fixture in my life. Though others could say the same, I believe mine to be a unique connection. My father, Tommy King, told me that back in the early 50’s, he was one of the first to try Mr. Cathy's newest creations: a chicken sandwich.
Seated in a booth with his boyhood friends, in the original Dwarf House, on Central Avenue in Hapeville, GA ... read more >
Our developmentally disabled son, Aaron, loved to go to Chick-fil-A with his job coach, Barbara, his best friend, Vanessa, and his other "homies" -- a loving term they used for one another. They spent countless days over the past 10 years enjoying Chick-fil-A Chicken Sandwiches, Chicken Nuggets, and dipping sauce, of course!
I was the Mom, so I didn't get to enjoy those lunches with the "homie... read more >
