In March 2005 I started a job about a mile from a Chick-fil-A and for the next five years, I went to Chick-fil-A for breakfast almost every work day. During that time, Mr. & Mrs. Kim, Ana the manager, and all of the staff of this Chick-fil-A became my friends and family.
In February 2009, I was diagnosed with liver cancer and needed a transplant. I can honestly say that I could not have gotten ... read more >
Ever since I can remember, I always wanted to be a husband and a father.
I remember thinking about the type of dad I would be and always hoped that I’d be a positive influence that didn’t inspire too many “daddy-issues” in my offspring. I can remember wanting to take my daughter out to a father-daughter something-or-other. I can even distinctly recall hearing about a father-daughter dance and... read more >
About three years ago, we brought my parents back to North Carolina from Colorado, as they both required nursing home care. My mom had Alzheimer's for about 8 years and my father had just lost a leg to Diabetes. With both of them being wheelchair bound, it was difficult to get around without help. Even then, it was not always easy to find places to eat out where there was room for both wheelchairs... read more >
My Mom, sister and I visited San Antonio, Texas from British Columbia, Canada to watch my nephew play football in a tournament, this game being against Team Europe (finals held in the Alamo Dome). He plays for Team B.C. (under 19's). As this game was being held in a stadium north of San Antonio, we decided to take a bus and get off at a small mall to do some shopping. We went for a late lunch t... read more >
I am from a small town in East Tennessee. I am 22 years old and grew up absolutely loving the "Chick!" Last year I applied and was accepted to the Disney College Program, an internship experience at the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California. I had never been and, although I was excited, I was nervous because I had heard through the grapevine that Chick-fil-A was not a "west coast thing." I was ... read more >
For almost four years we'd been trying to adopt a girl into our family. For one reason or another we found ourselves waiting, not matched, or otherwise delayed. At one point in the process we had to move to another state and start the process over from scratch.
Finally, God blessed us by adding a little three week old baby girl to our family. The adoption agency held a ceremony to celebrate th... read more >
This is me and my Grandson Riley. He was diagnosed with medulloblastoma on August the 15th of this year. It is a childhood brain tumor of which there is no cure. He has undergone surgeries and chemo and is now into radiation. He is our little hero, showing us what faith and trust in our Lord really is. He has never complained about his condition, although he really does not like to be poked and pr... read more >
One of the side effects of my wife's pregnancy was an unfortunate aversion to chicken. She couldn't be near it for months before our Jack was born. So we went from long standing to long suffering customers hoping that eventually that reaction would pass. Oh, I sneaked through your drive-thru now and again, waved at my favorite team and manager, Phil and company at your Spanish Fort, Alabama Restau... read more >
