I heart West Dallas

Posted by hrgarippa on 2 March, 2007

Yesterday was filled with highs and lows; moments of panic and moments of shear pleasure. Those fluctuating emotions are common place in this community, and mostly I’ve avoided them. But as my life and my heart become more intertwined with the lives of these kids and families it has become hard to not feel every emotion that they feel.

It seems that more and more every day I discover that this is the life I’m meant to have. Sometimes I’m grieved by that discovery – because it is hard sometimes to fit this life into the life I always thought I wanted. But I can’t picture my life without West Dallas. I don’t see my future without this community. And that makes me happy. That makes me feel perfectly content.

I heart West Dallas.
