I was reminded why I love the West End

this weekend when my car stopped working. It actually did me a favor. I got out- and WALKED to all my home tours. I walked to the mall, park, Kroger, McDonald’s, -around, up and down throughout all of MY neighborhood and it felt good. Seeing the early signs of spring- neighbors in their garden preparing to plant next month, meeting new neighbors moving in and hearing children’s laughter in the West End Park playground renewed my spirit.

When I first moved to GA, I lived in Decatur- off Wesley Chapel. I remember moving to GA without a car and being stuck. Stuck in my house- not being able to make it to the supermarket because at that time (6yrs ago) there were no side walks out there. Even now, although there are sidewalks- the streets are so massive, I’m not brave enough to run across them with my kids lol… But I disliked this state, and longed for home because I felt helpless.

 Thank God for experiences and “due season”…. I don’t think I would appreciate this area as much if I did  not experience that.  With that in mind, I thank God for the labor and work we must do (and are doing) now…it makes the future of the West End look much sweeter.

One thought on “I was reminded why I love the West End”

  1. I think the ability to walk is very underrated.

    At first, I thought you were talking about the West End inside NYC.

    But I can see there is another one in Georgia.

    Walking can account for a change of perception.
