Abby Muys-Wolf Is Amazing: The Olden Days!

December 19, 2012


Out in the open wisdom calls aloud, she raises her voice in the public square; on top of the wall she cries out, at the city gate she makes her speech,

“How long will you who are simple love your simple ways? How long will mockers delight in mockery and fools hate knowledge? (Proverbs 1:20)

Abby Muys-Wolf is amazing!

I first met Abby in Tinley Park around May of 2001 in the hiring trailer of our first Culver’s restaurant. A beautiful young girl full of life and enthusiasm that I could tell right away would be a perfect fit for us.  If my memory serves me correctly she came in with a male schoolmate of hers and they were both looking for a job. We ended up hiring her and the schoolmate and she ended up being one of the employees who opened the store with us, a handful of which I proudly say still work with us today.

Even though I’m sure there are a few, I’m having difficulty recalling a time that she didn’t come in with a smile one her face. Now the thing is, I used to be, and to a much lesser extent still am, a self centered and selfish person. I remember events but I don’t remember timelines or what year certain things happened or exactly how long someone did this or that because I was always worried about myself and too caught up in what I was doing. This is no different than most people who refuse to seek Truth. I preface this post with that so that you’ll hopefully understand when I say, I think Abby worked for us for three years and it might actually be five, or I get the timing or logistics of the story wrong, it’s not a slight against her, it’s a slight against me. If I’m ever not sure about something in any of my writing it’ll be obvious. I could call other people including Abby to refresh my memory on things but I want to write this entire story from the heart, all at once, even though I’ll break it up into several parts once it’s finished..

So I think Abby worked for us for three years until she left to go on a Christian mission trip. At this point like everyone in my life up until lately, if you weren’t in front of me, you weren’t in my life. I didn’t think about Abby as anything more than a past employee. Now I do have loyalty and a bond with anyone who’s ever worked with us. If her or any employee that has parted ways with us on good terms, and probably even ones that haven’t parted ways appropriately, needed something I’d be there for them, again I just didn’t think of anyone but myself day by day and that unfortunately and regrettably included my wife at the time, Christina.

Then one day she showed back up on the radar and one way or the other my life long friend Mike started talking to her and they started hanging out. They had met at my wedding and I think there might have been a little spark but nothing materialized until she was back from her mission.  From there they started dating and had an amazing relationship.

To be continued….

You can read more about Abby in the mean time here.

   Whoever corrects a mocker invites insults;

     whoever rebukes the wicked incurs abuse.

    Do not rebuke mockers or they will hate you;

     rebuke the wise and they will love you.

   Instruct the wise and they will be wiser still;

     teach the righteous and they will add to their learning.

  (Proverbs 9:7-9)
