12 Months!!!

One Year!!!!! I have now been writing on Hubpages for a year. It has been a wonderful experience for me. I have vented, I have cried, I have written of my life, my thoughts and from my heart. I have met other Hubbers that are so much more gifted than I in their wrting skills. Hubbers that have touched my heart as well. Thank you, you know who you are.  I have found that all of us are just like the next person with struggles and victories. There is a wealth of information in each of us and when it is put to print it can be a beautiful thing.

I have often wondered if others would want to read what I write but I have found too that I write for me, for my own peace of mind. If others read it, that is wonderful, if they do not, that is okay too. This last year has held the most change in my whole life. Hubpages has given me the opportunity to sort my thoughts and my feelings. To learn a lot more about who I am and what I am about. It has given me the freedom to be me.

I want to thank each of you and Hubpages for making this possible. Thank you for reading my Hubs, for your sincere comments and for giving me the opportunity to read yours all well. Hubpages is now four years old and I hope that it will be around for many more years and that others will be drawn here to share their stories of life, of love, of whatever their hearts want to share with the Hubpages community.  I am proud and feel blessed to be a part of such a grand community. I want to thank the one that introduced me to this melting pot of minds, it has been a experience like no other. Thank you so much, You know who you are!! It has been a goo d, positive thing in my life.

Happy 1st Birthday to me and Happy 4th Birthday to Hubpages. And I tip my hat to all of you who have made Hubpages such a success. From those who are behind the scenes to all of you with your wonderful stories and articles. Keep up the good work!!!
