Since keeping up with the hubs I have changed the way I view writing.  It is with utmost thankfulness that I write because looking at other countries I don't think it would be possible in some countries.  I have good friends that I've been friends for a long time but hearing their problems I'm glad I'm here.  I'm happy for all the feedback I get and this is a great sight for inspiration.. I'll keep on writing and keep on reading.. Love you Hubpages!!!
