The View from Up Here

The Grand Rapids Skyline offers a powerful image of the city. To see the growth of downtown has been magnificent to say the least. I have lived here my whole life and never expected to see how fast this city has grown. Recently, I got a call for a junk removal at a condo building downtown. Little did I know it was in one of the biggest buildings in Grand Rapids! So, when I found out I was going to help them with this project it was a privilege to clear out some of their unwanted junk. Afterwards we finished clearing up their unwanted junk we got a chance to go up to the 33rd floor of this building and check out the view. Wow, to be up there, so high and see how far the eye can see is something so beautiful and so magnificent. The cars on the street look like matchbox cars you can play with. The Grand River flowing as far as the eye can see. The sixth street bridge, the blue bridge and the church are just some of the landmarks this city offers. It is just so breath taking. This city continues to grow by the minute offering so much more. It has been a great journey to see and experience, looking forward to future growth within Grand Rapids. Sometimes, we get stuck in the hustle and bustle of everyday life and every now and then, we have to step back and just cherish the beauty Grand Rapids gives us. This is our beautiful city! It has lots to give. This is what makes all the hard work worth it.
